Celebrate National Science Week with a day of discovery and investigation at the Aquarium of Western Australia.
Full Day Excursion Packages for 70-240 students run from 9.30am - 2pm and include themed activities and presentations.
Students embark on a quest to discover the link between a sea creatures unique features and its food. In this celebration of ocean extremes’ students will learn about animals that are different by design plus what and how they eat.
Form and function, observable features, a living animal’s basic needs and the way objects move through water are the focus of enquiry with concepts of floating, friction and magnetic force also incorporated.
A strong emphasis can also be placed on caring for the environment, through the option for schools to collect and bring in their recyclables for deposit at AQWA. Sharks teeth are used to link both topics as tooth shape relates directly to diet. Sharks teeth are also considered ‘nature’s waste’ as they are regularly shed.
