Virtual Rock Pool Safaris

Live, interactive and educational

Like hermit crabs tucking themselves safely away in their shell waiting for a storm to pass, we find ourselves sheltering through another lockdown in the UK. However, here at The Rock Pool Project, we passionately believe enjoying and learning about nature is as important now as ever.

We are delighted to offer highly interactive, online rock pooling sessions to schools across the world.

Interactive and Online!

Via a secure zoom meeting, your class can join our expert marine biologists in an interactive exploration of the seashore. Children will have the chance to choose which rock pools to explore by video and be introduced to fascinating marine species such as cute cushion stars and vicious velvet swimming crabs! They can ask questions live throughout to our team and sessions can be easily linked to specific classroom topics in Science, Maths and English.

Our 60 minute virtual rock pooling sessions cost just £85 for up to 30 students, who can join from school or at home. (Additional classes within your school cost just £65.)

Testimonials

"Ben and his team delivered a fun and interactive online rockpooling session for Wild Wonder and Wisdom’s ‘Winter Wellness Weekend’ in December 2020. It was really well received and the kids got to ask their weird and wonderful questions about a variety of common rock pool species." ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
"Really liked that the session was interactive and enabled the children to be involved both prior and during the session. The staff took their time to develop a session that was right for our school and topic. Children were able to submit a photo of their discoveries prior to the session which was incorporated in to the main body of the presentation. The session was very informative and pitched at the right level for the age of the children and linked well to the content of the KS2 science curriculum." ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

"I like the concept. The videos were a good length and the range of creatures were good. I like that there was a question and a fact linked to each animal. I liked the bingo game to keep interest. I think the price was good and the children enjoyed it. It was great opportunity for them to see real life scientists -although that aspect could be capitalised on more. I think having two presenters - one to present and one to monitor the screens of the children was good. The delivery was clear and generally well-paced. I liked that the vocab was introduced at the start. Communication prior to the start was clear and good and the session was easy to book and set up. All in all I think it was a fun, interesting session and it made a nice change from the regular online learning we normally do." ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
