Marine life can be found in up to 99% of the habitable space on Earth, and makes up almost 80% of the planet's biodiversity. Our education programmes focus on the impact the marine world has upon us, and how we affect it.
We aim to introduce students to biodiversity and conservation. The idea that every living species is part of an interconnecting web of life, we aim to inspire and motivate them to get involved, raise awareness and to do what we can do to protect all our diversity.
We believe the best way to learn is to see and do - that's why we offer a range of tours and hands on activities to suit all age groups. If you're interested in bringing your group to Oceanworld, read on to find out more!
A typical visit lasts two hours, but if you're pushed for time or would like to stay longer, let us know and we will do our best to accommodate your needs!
Your two hours will include an interactive tour of the aquarium, with the chance to get up close and personal whilst touching and holding a spider crab and starfish! Our interactive classroom science experiments focus on the three primary science subjects; Biology, Chemistry and Physics. We aim to turn science into a memorable and engaging experience.
The experiments range from making slime, global warming balloon explosions and squid dissections.
We are able to cater for all ages and abilities and we can tailor our activities to suit your requirements, such as with role playing and puppet show creation.
We promise to make it an experience you won't forget!
