The Scottish Seabird Centre are excited to announce that our popular Scotland’s Marine Superstars workshop is returning for Orkney Science Festival 2023!
How many species of shark live in the seas around Scotland? How fast can a Gannet can dive? How long does it take for a fluffy seal pup to turn into an adult? What does an underwater meadow look like? Is climate change and pollution affecting our seas, and can anything be done about it?
Discover answers to questions like these and many more with a fun, interactive workshop delivered by experts from the Scottish Seabird Centre.
This curriculum-linked, interactive session will introduce children to some of Scotland’s most iconic, beautiful, and important marine species.
Students will have the opportunity to watch amazing footage of marine life, listen to sounds, marvel at life-sized props and models, and get involved in activities designed to engage children with the marine environment on their doorstep and inspire them to protect it.
Please note: New species will be included if workshop has already been delivered to a class in 2022, however priority will be given to schools/classes that didn’t receive the workshop last year.
