About our programs
The Marine Mammal Foundation’s innovative and ground breaking Education Program combines real applied research to student learning.
Our programs integrate a range of topics with a focus on marine mammals and our own watery backyard.
Incursions include the relevant theory and an interactive practical component or workshop, where students use recent scientific literature and real biological data from our research programs.
Programs align with the current Australian science curriculum, addressing the cross curriculum priority of sustainability under the organising ideas of systems (OI.1), world views (OI.4, OI.5) and futures (OI.6, OI.7, OI.8, OI.9).
All our programs can be modified for alternative age groups or education levels. Easy, no fuss incursions - everything provided.
We have had fantastic feedback from science teachers and students alike
It was nice to do something different than what we normally do in science.
I really enjoyed trying to match the fins to the dolphins and it was interesting to see what you could do with that data that was recorded.
I had so much fun being a dolphin, trying to find my fish!
I learnt so much about what I can do to help save our whales and dolphins, like recycling, not dropping rubbish and having a drink bottle.
Our students found the activity interesting, the content challenging and the AMMCF instructor motivated the students to learn
