SciFest – One Ocean, Our Future: Curator Q&A for students
Did you know that the Ocean covers more than 70% of the Earth’s surface and supplies half of oxygen we breathe?
The Australian National Maritime Museum invites students and teachers from stage 2-5 (years 3-10), to participate in this interactive Virtual Excursion with the curators behind our new One Ocean, Our Future exhibition.
Learn about marine ecosystems, protected areas and food webs while considering the impact humans have on these environments. Discover some of the positive action being taken to protect marine species and focus on how fisheries can become a sustainable food source for Australia.
Students will be engage with short video clips and have the opportunity to ask questions to our Curators in order to further their understanding of these areas.
