Ocean Discovery Education Reviews

Many parents commented that they loved the level of detail in which their children recalled what they had learnt from Ocean Discovery Education.

Anonymous Kindy Teacher

My class was very engaged as Charlotte shared her in-depth knowledge about marine habitats for the 'Ocean Adventurers - Big Blue Sea' program. The children were able to touch and hold the sea animals, amazing shells, shark jaws and coral. I was very satisfied with this marine incursion and would highly recommend Ocean Discovery Education.

Josie (Year 1 Teacher)
St Mary's Anglican Girls School

Charlotte presented a specialised session on sharks. She was very engaging and communicated her in-depth knowledge well.

I liked that Charlotte works with teachers to deliver a tailored, engaging incursion that is unique. It's great that students have the opportunity to observe and touch a variety of marine specimens.

Claudine (Year 11 Marine & Maritime Teacher)
Prendiville Catholic College

The entire Year 3 cohort became Ocean Trailblazer's after completing the 'Birth & Beyond' program on marine life cycles. Charlotte brought a diverse array of marine specimens, including sea stars, brittle stars, sea cucumbers, shells and shark jaws to educate about life cycles in a tangible and captivating way. This tactile approach enriched our students' scientific understanding and instilled an appreciation for marine conservation.

Georgia (Year 3 Teacher)
Bertram Primary School

Our toddlers, pre-kindy and kindy children really enjoyed this incursion. It was very engaging and hands-on. The children loved holding the sea stars, watching the crabs and touching the different textured shells.

It was pitched well for the age group, with a great range of resources!
