Ecology and the environment were the topics when the Aqua Kids TV show filmed recently at the Avery Point campus in several episodes that will air nationally this fall.

It was the second time in two years that the Aqua Kids filmed at Avery Point. The show airs throughout the US, Guam, and Puerto Rico and has an environmental education and conservation focus.

In Connecticut, it airs on Saturday mornings at 8:30 a.m. on WCTX in the Hartford and New Haven broadcast markets.
