Join SEA LIFE educators to discover incredible underwater animals and get involved in practical sustainability initiatives to create healthier oceans for all.
The Department of Education has managed to broker a number of free online interactive sessions for 2017 with the SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium.
The session dates, times, featured animals and topics are below. These sessions are available via Polycom, Lync or Skype for Business.

Ask the Aquarium – Student Voice
The Melbourne Aquarium has virtually opened their doors to Victorian schools. They have offered a 45 minute virtual session in late November (date and time to be confirmed)
In this session they will show the most popular zone request and answer some of your questions. This is likely not their last visit to schools, so if your selection is not the most popular this time around your selections will give us and the aquarium the information we need to make engaging and informative sessions in 2017.
To get started, head to https://www.melbourneaquarium.com.au/explore/ or download the SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium app and explore the 12 zones.
Pick which zone you would like to see the most, come up with a question you would like answered about the plants or animals in this zone and fill out the details on the form: https://goo.gl/forms/nnMWdhnkdg6ZEOst1
