Come spend Science Week 2017 at the South Australian Maritime Museum exploring and learning about the marine animals living within our bioregions.
With a strong focus on Biological Sciences and Science as a Human Endeavour, students learn about our unique marine environment and how the features and adaptations of animals enable them to survive. Students explore the concepts of responsibility, conservation, environment, habitat and living things.
We currently deliver three programs which can be tailored to meet student learning and curriculum outcomes.
Our programs include:
- Dolphin Discovery (Foundation – Year 2) More information
- Dolphin Detectives (Years 3 – 9) More information
- Biodiversity at Sea ( F –Year 6) More information
Student learning is enhanced with a Port River Cruise, searching for evidence of our bottlenose dolphins that are a significant part of the St Vincent Gulf bioregion. View the museum’s dolphin exhibition to investigate how human activity impacts on ecosystems and what actions we can all take to conserve these environments.
Younger students F- Year 2 can take the opportunity to dress up as marine creatures and participate in a creative play session in our Rockpool play space.
What to bring:
- closed in shoes must be worn if participating on our port river cruise
- warm weather-proof clothing and hat
- lunch and water bottle
