This course is aimed at children that are interested in the ocean, and its amazing animals and plants. We will cover
content, such as:

  • The sea star family – learn all about sea stars, sea urchins and sea cucumbers
  • How can you tell turtles, terrapins and tortoises apart?
  • Fish – what is a cartilaginous fish? What is a bony fish?
  • Coastal ecosystems – what is a wetland or an estuary?
  • People and the ocean – what is sustainability and how can you help the ocean?

The teachers at the Environmental Education Centre, at the Two Oceans Aquarium Education Foundation, aim to link educational content with the CAPS curriculum. This course is great fun for young ocean enthusiasts, but it will also assist with what they are learning at school.

The course format is a combination of self-studying during the week, with live interactive sessions with our teachers on Saturdays. Since we are online, this course is open to anyone in the world, as long as you have access to the internet, and are able to Zoom into our live sessions. A certificate will be issued to each participant at the end of the course.
