Back for one week only, the National Marine Aquarium in Plymouth is reopening its exclusive club for teenagers who are passionate about marine life and the coast. The ‘Ocean Squad’ summer school is open to 12-15 year olds and starts on 29th August 2017, for a five day programme until 2nd of September, and promises to be a fantastic way to finish off the summer school holidays.
The ‘Ocean Squad’ will take members on adventures and challenges to learn all about the diversity of our oceans. The Aquarium’s Public Engagement Team will be hosting the club and there will be plenty of opportunity to experience restricted areas of the Aquarium, as well as work closely with its marine biologists. Activities will include sailing adventures to Plymouth Sound, cooking with sustainable seafood, creating conservation videos and an exciting snorkelling safari. Starting on Tuesday 29th August, the club will run every day from 10am – 4pm.
Paul Botterill, Host Supervisor at the National Marine Aquarium, commented: “Back by popular demand, we are really excited to be launching our ‘Ocean Squad’ summer school at the end of August – which we hope will be a brilliant way to complete the holidays before the new terms starts. The club will provide a unique opportunity to be part of the Aquarium’s team, experiencing behind-the-scenes action, sailing in the elements and working with our experts.
“This unique opportunity is highly recommended for any young person that has a budding interest in marine biology. Places in the ‘Ocean Squad’ summer school are limited so, if you’d like to take part, we advise parents to book now to avoid disappointment.”
Each member of the ‘Ocean Squad’ will receive an ID which gives unlimited access to the National Marine Aquarium for the rest of the year. Members will also receive a certificate upon completion.
The price of the five day club is £110 per person. To find out more and book a place, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 01752 275233.
