Event description

Description

Primary School Aged Students

Designed for children who are passionate about marine animals, this one-day program offers children the hands-on opportunity to learn lots of amazing facts about a range of fascinating sea creatures, while gaining a deeper understanding of human impact on the ocean. The day is hosted by Marine Biologist & Director of Education, Richard Coward.

Have you ever wondered how many teeth a shark has, or which animal throws its stomach out through its mouth to eat? Then our fun and interactive Marine Biologist for a Day program is for you!

Outline of the Day

  • 9 am – Introductions
  • Jaws – understanding sharks, exposing myths and checking out the real jaws!
  • Hands-on Ocean Life Discovery – fascinating creatures and amazing facts
  • Human Impact – how to be a ‘Protector of the Ocean’
  • Kids Teaching Kids – sharing what we’ve learnt
  • Kids Teaching Parents – showcasing your knowledge to parents
  • 2.30 pm – Home Time

While stroking sea stars, handling sawfish rostrums and observing a baby shark from close quarters, the children absorb a huge amount of interesting facts, which they share with their parents in a presentation at the end of the day.

“My daughter loved being a Marine Biologist for a Day. She was clearly engaged because she retained so much information – months later she still tells people about her experience. It was extra great that beyond the animal information she took away a real sense of the importance of environmental care too. I highly recommend this activity and look forward to booking her in for more!”Rebecca
