OCEAN DISCOVERY DAYS

(11+ UP TO ADULT)

Our Ocean Discovery Days are designed to introduce project work to typically 10 – 14-year olds but work with any age group. Each Ocean Discovery Challenge is designed to encourage development of REAL SOLUTIONS to REAL environmental problems linked to each of our 4 Pillars: Ocean Health, Plastic Fantastic, Plastic Pollution and Plastic Solutions. Accredited by CREST, completion of any one of the Ocean Discovery Day Challenges and the CREST Passport will be eligible for the CREST Discovery Award. Deliverable in one day but perfect as a spring board into a real-life practical design project, these inspirational, far reaching Challenges are ideal for delivery by schools, Scouting, youth groups. With supporting film and leader packs, they need no special resources or knowledge to run.

Ages 11 – 16

The issue of ocean plastic is not only a science subject area. These resources are designed to replace, rather than embellish existing mainstream lessons. Designed by experienced teachers who are also experienced marine biologists, marine conservationists, waste management experts, they use the context of plastic in our ocean and are creative, engaging, fully resourced and differentiated.

Our 11-16 programme is designed to be used as a whole-school approach. It provides structured opportunities for pupils to engage with these issues once every term, across several subjects, throughout their secondary school career.

E-Learning for Teachers and Youth Leaders

To empower teachers and youth leaders with the knowledge and confidence to deliver the resources, the e-learning training programme will support the development of self-reflection on facilitators’ own knowledge, behaviours, attitudes and values towards plastics and the ocean. Engaging film clips, activities, quizzes, overviews of learning objectives and outcomes and support for identifying routes for delivery and impact measurement, this training course is an easy to complete, useful resource.

We are building more materials and want to respond to teachers’ needs. We would welcome any feedback or suggestions to ensure our resources are beneficial to teachers at all ages. We would particularly be interested to hear about requirements for secondary science and geography to assist with exam board requirements.
