Every Friday for the next 7 weeks they will be delivering FREE live lessons from their Aquarium via YouTube!  

Each week there will be two sessions: 

🦈🔬 The first 'Deep Science' (1:00pm to 1:20pm) will see their schools team using aquarium exhibits and their AquaLab to explore the science behind the animated ocean exploration tv series ‘The Deep’ (CBBC @12pm on weekdays during lockdown). Expect fascinating facts and real time experiments, as well as ideas to follow up with at home! 

🧜‍📖 The second will be ‘Mermaid Tales’, which will air from 1:30 – 1:45pm and will involve a short story narrated by their resident mermaid, Marina - perfect timing before an afternoon nap, or as a gentle, relaxing start to the afternoon.  For more information head here:
