Join the Two Oceans Aquarium Education Foundation for another online edition of the ever-popular Junior Biologist course for Grade 4 to 6 learners. We have offered this course for years at the Two Oceans Aquarium, however now an online version is available for any young ocean enthusiasts!
The Foundation's teachers are great at bringing the ocean and its amazing inhabitants to your home, via Zoom and their online e-learning platform. The course includes fun content, such as the differences between our two ocean basins, animals you will find in rock pools, an introduction to the amazing octopus family, how to tell turtles and tortoises apart, and a look at the fish family, including sharks. As an added bonus we will also show you the behind the scenes area of the turtle rehabilitation programme at the Two Oceans Aquarium. This course is great for any children that are between the ages of 10 and 12 years (or Grade 4 to 6), who have always showed an interest in the ocean and love the environment. Our course will definitely foster this love further and open up another world of wonder and learning.
The course format is a combination of live Zoom session each day, with additional content available on our e-learning platform. Since we are online, this course is open to anyone in the world, as long as you have access to the internet, and are able to Zoom dive into our live sessions.
