Interactive Learning You Can Do From Home!

We are all spending more time at home this summer but that doesn't mean you need to be stuck doing the same thing every day. Virtual Explorers brings some of Maritime Gloucester's signature programs straight to you! Each week through the rest of the summer we will be releasing new activities designed to get you outside, moving, learning and creating! Check back here every week to see what new content we have posted. This will include Creature-of-the-Week with craft, maritime scavenger hunts, maritime bingo, community science meet-ups and more!

Maritime Gloucester Members receive some of this content before the general public. To sign up for a membership please click here. We are excited to embark on this journey with you. For any questions regarding Virtual Explorers, please email

Indoor Science: pH Exploration

Understanding pH is important because living organisms must maintain a certain pH balance in order to work properly or even survive.  Biological functions like our stomach acids must be at a certain pH level or they begin to fail.

For your little scientist, pH is also pHun! That's because pH is a measurement and it is a building block function in experiments. Since it is all around us and it is a measurement, it is the perfect science project for your indoor scientist. 


Get your gear together and have some pHun with our pH Exploration experiment.
