75 educators went behind the scenes at S.E.A. Aquarium in last Educator Preview of 2018

Our final Educator Preview of the year saw 75 primary and secondary school educators join us for a customised tour around S.E.A. Aquarium and The Maritime Experiential Museum to better understand both attractions and the educational programmes available.

Maritime Experiential Museum
The educators first had a whistle-stop tour of the basement of The Maritime Experiential Museum to look at the different Ports of Call.

They were then brought on a customised tour around S.E.A. Aquarium by members of the Education Team.

The tour consisted of stops at various learning stations (e.g. Hard Corals, Sea Jellies) covered in our educational programmes, where the Education Team talked about the main learning takeaways for students.
The educators got to meet some of the aquarium’s newest residents, such as the Vampire Fish and Elephant Fish. Here, they were introduced to the Vampire Fish.
The Education Team also pointed out new infographics on marine conservation and talked about the aquarium’s conservation priorities

Following the tour, they were brought to the back-of-house of Shark Seas, where a member of the Curatorial Team explained more about caring for our sharks.

Aquarist Khew Wai shared about the different types of feeding methods, and the unique features about each shark species. He also shared about the equipment (e.g. SCUBA gear, chainmail suit) that they use when diving into the habitat to clean or feed.

After an exciting morning, the educators were led to Rock Studio at Hard Rock Hotel for a tea break. Next, the Conservation Team introduced S.E.A. Aquarium’s conservation group, Guardians of the S.E.A.A..

Yan Fang from our Conservation Team spoke about the group’s conservation efforts both within the resort and with various members of the community. Guardians of the S.E.A.A. also welcomes the involvement of school groups at their annual beach cleanups.
Gavin from our Education Team then shared about the various educational programmes available at The Maritime Experiential Museum and S.E.A. Aquarium.

The preview concluded with a learning journey to the Trick Eye Museum, where educators had fun learning about 3-dimensional illusions.
