What can WiseOceans offer you and your school, club, society or staff?
WiseOceans provides marine awareness and education in informal, informative and fun ways for all ages, all around the world. WiseOceans uses marine education as a tool to build awareness of the marine environment, its plight and the concept of conservation. When we know what wonderful life we have in our oceans we are much more likely to want to preserve it. By instilling this at a young age we really start to develop budding young marine biologists.
Our marine awareness presentations are very visual using media-rich presentations combined with movies, stories, songs, quizzes, projects and activities all tailored to your needs. We combine a visual presentation with easy to understand verbal information geared to different ages and abilities.
Whether your session is face-to-face and in the classroom or via the internet your class will be enthralled by the underwater world. To book or to contact us for more information, please fill in the booking form at the bottom of this page, thanks!
Dive in… at School
- School assemblies; whole school or smaller groups, divided by ages. These are set marine awareness talks of 30-45 minutes in length with time for questions.
- Classroom-based talks tailored to the school’s curriculum: food chains, ecosystems, endangered animals, conservation issues, plastic pollution etc. These are talks for individual classes relating to subjects the children are currently learning about. They are designed to the requirements of the class and are in the form of presentations, group discussions and related activities.
- Marine-related activities and songs with actions or story time for the younger ages. Shorter more varied and active sessions for the under 7’s, but still packed full of valuable information.
- Presentations and workshops for teachers and club leaders to provide them with the tools and knowledge to pass onto their students. It is essential that teachers have background knowledge of our oceans and understand their importance, therefore continuing a vital conservation ethic in their teaching.
All sessions include information on different ecosystems and their inhabitants, how they all link perfectly together and are vital to life. We draw attention to how vulnerable and fragile our marine environment is and our the role we all play in its preservation.
