Aquatic Classroom

Oceaneers Education Logo greenAIMS

The aim of this aquatic education programme is to introduce a tropical aquarium into the school classroom and use it as an education tool. It provides an excellent hands-on teaching tool as it offers students of all ages the opportunity to learn directly through experience. Caring for the aquarium kindles a sense of responsibility, achievement and a genuine desire to learn. Students not only develop learning skills, but, because they get excited about their aquarium, are eager to share what they learned with family members and friends.

A teaching aquarium is a great way for students of all ages to learn about a variety of topics and gain valuable life lessons. Teachers are given a unique opportunity to teach a receptive audience in a fun and interactive manner, and to facilitate and provide a teacher-friendly experience, Seiche will provide all relevant teaching resources, lesson plans and activities, thus allowing teachers an educational and enjoyable experience.

The lesson plans and activities aim to integrate aquatic themes into strands taught to school students aged between nine and twelve years. The lesson plans are based on the School Curriculum including subjects such as Science, Geography, History, Mathematics, Language and Arts Education. On completion of this project the class will be awarded an Aquatic Classroom certificate of participation.

    “I especially appreciated the amount of hands-on training with the data processing software and user interface. This included deployment of an actual PAM array and operation of the PAM monitoring equipment in a realistic survey scenario, complete with cooperative vocalizing dolphins.

    Hands-on practice completing the standardized data sheets used by BOEM and JNCC were also features that I thought left the potential PAM operator ready for real-world application of his or her training.

    The materials and practical training give the students all they need to succeed as a professional PAM operator.”

    “Excellent. A superb mix of theory and practical. The course leader provides expert up to date knowledge, information that is both easy to absorb and follow whilst being comprehensive. I would highly recommend this course for potential MMOS.”

  • Dan Coles, June 2014

    “The practical side of the course was essential as it gave a very real experience of the role played by an MMO offshore.”
