WHERE: Elementary and Middle Schools across Miami Dade, Broward and Palm Beach Counties

WHEN: May 1-2 and May 5-6

WHY: The Marlins Think Tank is an online curriculum-enhancement program that utilizes the Miami Marlins as the basis for learning. Marlins Think Tank aims to enrich the learning experiences of children in grades 4-6 by linking baseball to the curriculum areas of writing, language arts, mathematics, social studies, science, and health & fitness. The program provides lesson plans which meet Common Core State Standards as adopted by the Florida Department of Education, with the Miami Marlins as the lesson theme.
