Undersea Explorers is an exciting new educational marine awareness programme aimed at KS2 children promoting awareness of the UK’s fascinating undersea landscape and wildlife.
The coastline of Essex is the longest of any UK county and includes many vital wildlife features from cliffs to saltmarsh. At Essex Wildlife Trust we are passionate about the importance of people of all ages having the opportunity to learn about their marine environment.
Essex Wildlife Trust offers a range of educational programmes based around our marine environment. Designed to be interactive, our programme closely links with core areas of the national curriculum and can be carried out at your local beach or in your school.
Undersea Explorers is an exciting new educational marine awareness programme aimed at KS2 children promoting awareness of the UK’s fascinating undersea landscape and wildlife. Simulating the marine environment in the safety of a swimming pool, we use props such as lifelike seaweed and jellyfish to introduce marine wildlife through games and activities. Activities include species identification, food chains, habitats and adaptation. Plus life skills; team working, water confidence and snorkelling.
We can work with 18 children at a time at your local pool or school pool and the session lasts 1 hour in the water plus some prep work in the classroom prior to the pool session. We provide staff and volunteers trained in delivering Undersea Explorers and work with a ratio of 1:6 children.
Cost - Donation £10 per child with a maximum of 18 children.
For groups with fewer than 15 children the minimum donation will be £150.
