Dingle Oceanworld Aquarium School Tour



Discovery Primary Science & Maths 2014


DPSM - Primary Learning at Oceanworld Aquarium

Marine life can be found in up to 99% of the habitable space on Earth, and makes up almost 80% of the planet’s biodiversity. Our education programmes focus on the impact the marine world has upon us, and how we affect it.

We aim to introduce students to biodiversity and the idea that every living species is part of an interconnecting web of life, inspiring and motivating them to get involved to keep it going.

We believe the best way to learn is to see and do – that’s why we offer a range of tours and hands on activities to suit all age groups. If you're interested in bringing your group to Oceanworld, read on to find out more!



DPSM Activities – At a glance

A typical visit lasts two hours, but if you're pushed for time or would like to stay longer, let us know and we will do our best to accommodate your needs!

We currently offer the following packages:

Package A: Environmental Awareness
Consists of a tour and hands on classroom activities that focus on conservation at a level appropriate for your group. Activities could include:

Package B: Habitats and Adaptations
Consists of a tour and hands on classroom activities that focus on habitats and adaptations of animals at a level appropirate for your group. Activities could include:

• Sea Shapes – Adaptations to life in the water

Package C: Science and The Sea
