Education Programmes 2013
The NPC Sea World Education Centre offers a range of educational experiences designed to suit various Grades. All activities are linked to the school curriculum and on request we can provide the relevant lesson plan for your booked activity.
During your uShaka Sea World tour an education guide will accompany your group (approximately 50 learners per group) through the Aquarium, providing information at large exhibits.
A specialist guiding experience explores the Aquarium in more detail with approximately 12 learners per group.
Lessons take the form of a 45-minute interactive presentation.
Courses are more comprehensive and take around four hours including specialised guiding and group activities. Your group will be divided into smaller groups of about 12 learners and each group will receive individual attention from a facilitator.
Book a special guiding and our qualified and experienced staff will take learners through the aquarium in small groups. Guiding may be general or it can be theme-based, for example: conservation, ecology or biodiversity.
