Education Programs

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.

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).
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.
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
