LESSONS FROM THE WORLD OF WATER

Whereas the public aquarium component is focused on immersive experiences and general knowledge, the Education Centre seeks to inspire generations of students and groups to a keen interest in the environment around them.

 

The learning enjoyment of biological sciences and related STEM subjects is the focus for the Centre. Hands-on learning is engaging, is retained longer by creating an emotional tie to the experience and encouraging curiosity for further learning. When combined with live exhibit experiences, this effect can be even more profound.
