Virtual Mermaid Experience For Schools

Our Virtual Mermaid Experience allows children to interact with our own resident mermaid, Marina! Students will be shown a range of fascinating under sea specimens such as shark jaws and turtle shells, have lots of fun pretending to be different sea creatures, learn weird and wonderful facts, and will have the opportunity to ask Marina questions about life under the sea. Each session will finish with an engaging and inspiring Ocean-themed story written by Marina herself. 

“Our children absolutely loved their encounter with Marina the Mermaid! They really enjoyed listening to her stories and learning about the variety of life under the sea”

Ms Brown, Reception Teacher
