With more than 10,000 creatures, 30 display tanks, and a 300-foot ocean tunnel, Sea Life Minnesota Aquarium gives visitors an up-close look at the sea's intriguing inhabitants. Sand tiger sharks feed on crustaceans and squid, one of the world's largest collection of jellyfish floats under multicolored disco lights, and the popular day octopus emits clouds of black ink to prevent visitors from glimpsing its unfinished autobiography. An interactive quiz trail helps deepen visitors' knowledge of the sea creatures, many of which are on the endangered list and have been rescued or were born and bred as part of Sea Life's conservation projects.

Having learned the ways of martial arts under seventh- and eighth-degree black-belt masters, Sparring World Champion Sandy Petitto took her talents and winning attitude to Newport News. At Petitto's Black Belt Academy, she's trained some of the nation's top students, as well as the nation's top instructors. In karate classes for kids, and martial-arts, taekwondo, karate and krav maga classes for men and women, students learn self-confidence and gain toned bodies and minds as they master punches and kicks. Xtreme Martial Arts courses fuse martial arts with acrobatics and aerobics, preparing fighters for surprise bouts with Mary Lou Retton, and American Taekwondo Association Combat Self-Defense programs turn the tables on assailants, as students learn to maximize their instincts.

Julie Fabing Burleson and Suzy Vinson Nettles feel that the kitchen is just another place for kids to flex their creativity. They opened Young Chefs Academy to provide kids aged 3–18 with cooking programs targeted to preschoolers and kindergarteners, elementary schoolers, and older kids ready for trickier techniques and intricate recipes. Regardless of a student’s age, he or she is always taught the pillars of home cooking, including how to be safe in the kitchen, how to properly handle and prepare food, how to bake, and how to talk down an oven that constantly overheats. While participating in the entertaining cooking lessons, kids may not even realize that each class also allows them to practice their math, reading-comprehension, and communication skills.

National publications such as Shutterbug magazine, Professional Photographer magazine, Rangefinder, and American Photo magazine have taken notice of Scott and Adina Hayne. The duo's edgy portraiture style sets subjects at the fore of a wide-angled backdrop and moves in for gauzy close-ups that accentuate natural beauty. The results evoke an "in-the-moment" aesthetic in wedding pictures, leave senior portraits ready for fashion magazines, and prompt parents to wonder who replaced the kids with professional models in family pictures. Besides capturing images, the expert clickers preside over lectures and workshops aimed at digital photographers of all experience levels.
