Ever wondered how many teeth a shark has? How long sea cucumbers live for? Which animal throws its stomach out through its mouth to eat? Ocean Life Education’s Marine Biologist for a Day Primary Program is designed for children with a curiosity about the marine environment and the fascinating animals who call it home.
This program dives deep below the surface to provide kids with in-depth knowledge and hands-on experience. It also clears up some common misconceptions about the ocean’s much-maligned awesome apex predator – the shark.
Are you interested in Marine Science or thinking about becoming a Marine Biologist? Dive into the world of marine science on this full-day program designed to introduce students to the marine environment, engage them in marine science, and inspire them to get out there and make a difference.
Students cover a wide variety of marine biology topics including fish adaptations, dangerous marine animals, shark ecology, echinoderm classification and learn about current ocean concerns such as microplastics, animal ethics and ocean acidification. They also check out what’s on the inside by observing a scientific fish dissection.
For Professional Educators
A fully qualified marine biologist uses live touch tanks, preserved marine animals and artefacts to provide students with an in-depth understanding of the ocean and the animals in it. Students also discover what it’s like to work in the field of marine science and learn about career options.
