The goal of the Virtual Urchin project is to make sea urchin embryos readily accessible through development of inquiry based lessons, available on a freely-accessible, open access website.

Students can then move beyond the early embryo, and explore how scientists study sea urchins to understand larval development and metamorphosis, community ecology, pollution in the marine environment and biological evolution.
