New this Year! More Discovery Labs in the Bechtel Education Center

With the opening of our new Bechtel Family Center for Ocean Education and Leadership, we have more than doubled the number of Discovery Labs we offer!

A New Space for Larger Groups in Grades 3-12

We now can offer four Discovery Lab programs at the same time — enough to accomodate 140 students at once!

Other Favorites Still Available

Discovery Labs for grades PreK-2 will still take place in the learning labs in the Aquarium. We'll also still be offering our popular Ocean Explorer programs, and, as always, all groups will continue to have a self-guided experience in the Aquarium.

Changes to the Reservation Process

If you made an online reservation during the 2018-19 school year, you'll use the username and password you created at that time. If this is the first time you’re making an online reservation, you'll need to create an account.

New This Year

All teachers will be asked to provide their CDS school code. You can look up your CDS school code using the California School Directory. We recommend using the advanced search feature to narrow down the results, as many schools have the same name.

Look up your CDS code now

Once you book a program, you'll receive an email confirming your program, date and arrival time. Popular programs and dates fill quickly, so reserve early! For details, please visit the Field Trip Reservations page or call us toll free at 866.963.9645. Calls are answered Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

We're looking forward to meeting your students next school year!

Tank Soo Do is a traditional Korean martial art...

Tank Soo Do is a traditional Korean martial art which dates back 2000 years.  

There are many reasons why men, women, and children from all walks of life have taken up Tang Soo Do training.  This ancient martial art form is known for having the most effective training methods for self-discipline, self-confidence, physical fitness, stress management and the ultimate form of self-defense techniques which is why it is considered a way of life rather than a sport.   

Lopez Family Martial Arts promotes a fun but disciplined family atmosphere where students learn at their own pace and individual physical, mental and emotional circumstance that helps them reach their physical goals as well as their academic and personal goals.  A great place for the family to train, get fit and learn Tang Soo Di together! 


We are currently offering a back to school special: 4 Weeks for $49 plus a free uniform.
