Steven W. Baker Sea, Sand, & Stars, Science and Nature Center
Sea, Sand, and Stars features a huge, beautiful 5,800
gallon aquarium with a large variety of fish. In addition, the
facility has a 38 seat planetarium with a Digitarium Alpha II
Projector, technology used in the best planetariums across the
world. The facility is equipped to tap into the
Hubble Telescope and allows visitors a real-time
look through this amazing window into space. Sea, Sand, and
Stars features a computer technology room, complete with 30
computer work stations. Just around the corner a laboratory will
allow students and adults to get a closer look at marine life.
You'll also be able to enjoy a library, meeting rooms and
classrooms. If this wasn't impressive enough, outside you'll find
an 800 ft. boardwalk that will take you to four large outdoor
gazebo classrooms where students will learn about birds, plants,
amphibians, and insects. In partnership with WKRG TV, a weather
station, complete with measuring and monitoring technology, allows
students to learn meteorology and then report the weather in front
of a real television news set.
Sea, Sand, and Stars has been made possible through generous
contributions from Brett-Robinson Construction, the City of Orange
Beach and the Baldwin County Board of Education.
