Beneath the Waves

Third Level to Senior Phase - In-person Workshop

Class Level: S1+

Duration: 50 minutes

Step into the shoes of an ocean scientist using real data sets to explore the seas surrounding Scotland, from deep sea vents to cold-water coral reefs. Identify different species and their adaptations to these harsh environments. Dive deeper into the history of ocean research and how it has evolved over time from dredging the sea bed to using remote operate vehicles (ROVS). Beneath the Waves is part of our Discover the Deep programme made possible through the Heritage Fund. Thank you National Lottery players.
