Online School Excursions SEA LIFE MELBOURNE AND LEGOLAND Discovery Centre

Merlin Entertainments’ Melbourne attractions SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium and LEGOLAND Discovery Centre are now offering online workshops for primary school classrooms across Victoria.

Aligned with the Victorian Curriculum with a focus on STEM disciplines, the online interactive classes bring students face-to-face with our experienced educators and can be run via Google Classroom, Zoom or Skype.

The team at SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium is offering 45-minute workshops on the principles of animal care and the day in the life of a SEA LIFE keeper. Designed to provoke discussion, teachers can select from a range of topics including habitats, animal classifications, food, lifecycles and conservation.

At LEGOLAND Discovery Centre teachers can select a hands-on 50-minute workshop that reinforces concepts in science, mathematics, language, arts and engineering through LEGO building. There is the choice of robotics, spinning tops or creative storytelling and the workshops cost is $6 per student. Children can either bring their own LEGO from home or teachers can purchase LEGO workshops packs at the time of booking.

“We look forward to bringing our magical attractions to schools all over Victoria via our new workshops. Our aim is to provide fun and educational experiences for school groups during this period where we are unable to host excursions. Our SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium workshops inspire curiosity about the natural world and the need to protect it. At LEGOLAND Discovery Centre our philosophy is all about encouraging learning by doing as well as fostering exploration and experimentation through LEGO building,” said Katie Isaac, General Manager of SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium and LEGOLAND Discovery Centre.
