Meeting of the Minds 2013
5 & 12 June
Technology at the Aquarium!
On 5 & 12 June 2013 Talented and Gifted students of Year 5-8 can attend Technology at the Aquarium! There will be four free half day programmes at the aquarium. Start thinking about who could be nominated from your school.
Ever wondered what it takes to operate the oceanarium tank? How does the aquarium keep its animals alive and healthy? Test the salinity, pH and temperature of the water in aquarium tanks. Students will get a behind the scenes look at the technology that keeps the National Aquarium running.
Two sessions run each day from 9.15-11:30 am and 12.15-2.30 pm. Up to 10 students per school are encouraged to attend. Schools need to register their students now to avoid missing out.
All entrants to the Meeting of the Minds are invited to complete an optional online project for the Jock Mc Kenzie award. Research questions are here so students can research and prepare for the event. Prizes are given for the best project and certificates are given to all participants.

Biodiversity Day Celebration – 20-24 May 2013
Book your juniors in for a free session at the aquarium. During the week of 20-24 May 2013 there will be a unique opportunity for Year 1-3 students who may not normally have the privilege of visiting the aquarium, to join us for a free fun day.
Children will be taken on a tour of the aquarium, feed fish and have peeks of the behind the scenes areas at the aquarium.
Sessions of 45 minutes will run each day and groups are invited to spend more time for reflection after the programme. Up to 10 students per school are encouraged to attend. Schools need to register their students now to avoid missing out.
