Motion in the Ocean

Motion in the Ocean

Friday 21 February 2020

2.00pm - 3.00pm

A workshop with a difference.

We are all born curious, but being told what, when and how we should learn does not stimulate that natural curiosity; it stifles it. Our aim is to present children with topics that stimulate their minds so they become self-motivated to learn about the topics that interest them. Children don’t want to sit quietly and listen to a speech – they want to get hands-on, messy and have fun.

Plant the seeds of curiosity in their minds and sit back and watch them bloom.

Sensational Squid

Join us in our hands-on demonstration of how squid move through water. Learn about propulsion and find out how and why some squid can move faster than Usain Bolt.

Experts in Escape

We will be investigating all sorts of super cephalopods and learning about their clever defence tactics.

Light up the Ocean

Experts believe that around 90% of deep-sea creatures can glow in the dark. We will be exploring bioluminescence together and looking at how and why marine creatures light up the world below the surface of our seas.
