Dive into the deep blue and let those creative juices flow this National Science Week. Enter our 'Deep Blue' Marine STEAM Competition for a chance to WIN an awesome science pack.

CHALLENGE: Make a marine creature

Get creative with craft materials, paint and items from around your home and backyard to design and make a marine creature.

Be inspired by researching marine creatures online or in books. Your design process should consider your marine creature's physical size and features, defence mechanisms, diet and habitat.

Your design may be based on a real life creature or an imaginary creature. The deep blue is the limit.

  • 3-5 year olds
