ocean crafts and whale school
During the school holidays we run two types of session at the MWDW Visitor Centre.
Ocean Crafts is suitable for any age and uses recycled materials to create a marine related craft. Sessions last 1 and a half hours.
Whale School is aimed at older children and introduces marine mammal science in an age appropriate manner through practical tasks. Each child makes a related craft to take home. Sessions last 2 hours.
Here are some examples of Whale School activities from summer 2023
Photographing fins! Learn how scientists use photos to recognise individual dolphins. Make a wearable Risso's dolphin dorsal fin to take home.
Greedy Giants- Discover how huge whales feed, look at real-life baleen plates, play the baleen game experiment and make a baleen mask to take home
Fact files- Create your very own marine life fact file to take home and build upon over time
All future dates of Ocean Crafts and Whale School will be added here and on the MWDW Facebook page. Booking is essential and places are limited. A small fee covers the cost of craft equipment.
