Event description

Description

Dive into the underwater world of whales in this full day program for mini-marine biologists aged 8-12 years.

Did whales ever walk on land? Do they sleep? Why do whales beach themselves? Children will discover the latest research and meet real scientists to help answer these fascinating questions.The Australian Museum's very own curator of vertebrate palaeontology, Matt McCurry, will shed light on whale evolution and Māori scientist, Rata Pryor Rodgers, will share her experiences studying whales in New Zealand and even the coldest place on Earth - Antarctica!

Part of the day includes exclusive access to our immersive exhibition - Whales | Tohorā, where children come face-to-face with the world’s largest animals and celebrates their role in South Pacific Islanders’ rich cultural history.

This special 'Scientist for a Day' program is jam-packed with fun activities including a behind-the-scenes tour of the marine mammal collection, science experiments, games, and more!
