Explorer Boxes

Bring the ocean into your classroom by hiring an Explorer Box! There are 8 themes to choose from and each box contains biological artefacts, games, information and a memory stick with fact cards and cross curricular activities for you to copy and use. The memory stick also holds activities that other teachers who have used the boxes have added – feel free to share your ideas too, by uploading them on to the stick.

Themes are:

  • Bony Fish
  • British Coasts
  • Conservation
  • Coral Reefs
  • Marine Invertebrates
  • Marine Mammals
  • Marine Turtles
  • Sharks & Rays

Teacher CPD

To help you make the most of the resources presented by the National Marine Aquarium, we have developed a CPD course that can be tailored to your requirements. The course will help you plan activities to prepare students for a visit to the Aquarium, as well as providing ideas to develop their pre and post visit learning. Each CPD course is slightly different as the activities during the day will be customised to your requirements. This means that we can focus on a particular subject area or concentrate on a cross-curricular theme.
