Kids Education Sleepovers

The Kids Education Sleepover programme includes a free 30min lesson on your chosen topic followed by a consolidation activity-worksheet, or a game. If you would like to include this education component as part of your sleepover programme please contact one of the Aquarium's Education Team.
