Educational Marine Touch Tanks

Marine Ecological Habitats Educational Touch Tanks are long-term scientific research/teaching tools. Like all of our marine habitats, Touch Tanks feature the finest quality components, including three quarter inch American Acrylic and are designed to last 15 to 20 years. Touch Tanks are child-friendly, easy to maintain and mobile. The tank’s design allows educators and exhibitors to recreate life in the sea to a remarkable degree of accuracy.

Touch Tanks are rapidly becoming one of the most popular and effective marine science educational tools in our school systems today. By bringing the marine environment indoors, students of all ages can experience the beauty and magic of the earth's eco-systems and discover the complexity of the symbiotic relationships that help keep the earth's environment in balance. Students are encouraged to touch all of animals in the tank and experience, first-hand, the wonder of nature.

The eco-system in the touch tanks is as close to mother nature as you can get without actually being there. The environment in the tank provides healthy living conditions for crabs, oysters, sea cucumbers, sea stars, sand dollars, periwinkles, mussels, hermit crabs, crayfish and other species that dwell in the shallow waters of lakes, rivers, and coastal waters. Students are able to observe how the animals interact in their native habitat.

Touch Tanks employ a sophisticated water purification system, like that used in our aquariums and lobster tanks. The user-friendly filtration system allows students to take an active role in the maintenance and upkeep of the tank, becoming more involved with the overall harmony of a delicate, yet hardy, eco-system. Students build an awareness of the need to have respect for the environment and all the creatures that live in it.


Educators, Curators and Research Scientists are the Touch Tanks most enthusiastic supports. Click here to view a list of references.
