Deep Sea Adventure

First and Second Level - In-person Workshop

Class Level: P5-P7

Duration: 50 minutes

Become a scientist on an expedition into the deep ocean! Through some hands-on activities find out how we study the oceans, why it’s important to protect them and what weird and wonderful creatures lurk in their murky depths. Why not pair this workshop with our Under Pressure planetarium show for an even deeper dive into underwater worlds?! Deep Sea Adventure is part of our Discover the Deep programme made possible through the Heritage Fund. Thank you National Lottery players.
