WILD Weekends

Overview

WILD Weekends
We Inspire Learning through Discovery

WILD (We Inspire Learning through Discovery) Weekends at the Ocean Institute highlight take-home science activities for families.

Each WILD weekend will focus on a different science topic ranging from marine pollution to terrestrial ecology. At the end, families will have the tools to keep the discovery going at home.

Join us for one of the WILD Weekends below.

Moon Jelly in a Jar
WILD Weekend Series

Moon Jellies in a Jar will be a fun and interactive experience for all participants. This activity will educate visitors about different jelly species, whilst diving into the serious problem of plastics in our ocean. Both kids and parents will be able to make their very own jelly in a jar to take home and experience a moon jelly feeding by our animal husbandry interns. Come explore the world of jellies and learn how you can prevent plastics from entering our ocean.
