Tuesday's Daily News ran an article about a program at the New York Aquarium called 'The Keeper Experience,' which provides 8-12 year old students with some hands on learning experience:

Anya Gips, 9, may want to grow up to be a marine biologist.

She and other children got to see just what that might be like - working as animal keepers for a day at the New York Aquarium in Coney Island

"It's a chance to get them excited about the life of a keeper," said instructor Melissa Karp. "I was really happy to see so many girls interested in a career in science."
