Through coordinated efforts with the Two Oceans Aquarium Education Foundation, a number of marine science, scientific literacy, and sustainability programmes are made available for all ages, from children to adults. From job-shadowing and volunteering to exciting online courses the whole family can enjoy, you'll find what you need here.

Book a school group

Getting out of the traditional classroom and visiting the Two Oceans Aquarium is a great way to augment curriculum learning. And our classroom has mini fish tanks built into the desks!

Online Courses

The Two Oceans Aquarium Education Foundation continues the Aquarium's 25-year legacy of providing world-class marine science literacy and education to children and adults alike. Through its new online platform, the Foundation now offers diverse courses with topics ranging from oceanography and biology to language and human interactions with the environment. Online courses are available for all ages, from children to adults.

Outreach programmes

If you can't get to the Aquarium, we'll come to you! We have two programmes on offer:

  1. Our mobile aquarium, the Oceans In Motion van, is a fully-equipped, life-supporting unit that goes to previously disavantaged schools to bring the wonders of the ocean to their learners.
  2. With our Smart Living outreach programme, engage the students that we visit on key environmental issues such as waste, water, energy, and protecting our biodiversity.

Puppet shows

Suitable for ages 3 to 9, our very popular environmental educational puppet shows will come to your school. We currently offer six fun-filled, interactive puppet shows: “I Love Turtles”, “Keep the Beach Clean” and “I Live Smart”, in English, Afrikaans and Xhosa. The shows are supported by beautifully illustrated books as well as printable activity sheets related to the story.
