Over the past few years, hundreds of primary schoolers have enjoyed our holiday sessions that inspire them to care for the ocean – now it’s time for the high schoolers to get in on the action.
Due to popular demand, our Marine Biologist for a Day program has been adapted to cater for an older audience who want a more in depth look at the world of marine science.
Students will have the chance to examine in detail our impact on the ocean including environmental stress on coral reef systems, water acidification and plastic pollution. We will discuss a wide range of ideas on how to better care for the health of our seas.
The aim of the program is to making learning fun and relevant, examining animal classification to discover how each creature fits into the aquatic world.
The program will be very interactive, with students observing the dissection of a dead fish to reveal the organ make-up and development of a mullet.
And our most popular feature will still be included – the chance to gently touch our living sea creatures – an opportunity that never gets old at any age!
This program will provide a valuable insight to the workings of the aquatic world for any high schooler who has a passion for the ocean or is considering a career in marine sciences.
But we haven’t forgotten the younger students – our classic Marine Biologist for a Day will still be running in school holidays – we’re just expanding the program to grow with your kids.
