Description

High School Students

Are you interested in Marine Science, thinking about becoming a Marine Biologist?

Dive into the world of marine science. This full day program is an excellent way to introduce students to the marine environment, engage students in marine science, and spark the interest of those with little previous exposure.

Students will cover a wide variety of marine biology topics including fish adaptations, dangerous marine animals, shark ecology, echinoderm classification and much more. A fully qualified marine biologist will use our live touch tanks and preserved marine animals to provide students with an in-depth understanding of the ocean and the animals in it. Check out what's on the inside by observing a scientific fish dissection. Learn about current ocean concerns such as microplastics, animal ethics and ocean acidification.

Understand what it is like to work in the field of marine science and learn about the career options.

You will receive a Certificate of Participation.

Spaces are limited, bookings essential!
