With the understanding that people learn best through experience, MMA aims to provide excellent, hands-on learning opportunities that engage children, young adults, families, and adults in science. The diverse ecosystems of Nantucket serve as the classroom and the means to awaken our students’ interest in marine science, natural science, astronomy, field research, and environmental stewardship.
MMA is dedicated to helping our visitors achieve the following goals:
- Developing knowledge and interest in the outdoor world
- Connecting people to our local environment through explorations, investigations, and field research
- Inspiring youth, families, and adults to discover ways that they can work to protect our natural world
