Planet Shark: Educator Preview

Tue 23 Jul 2019


WA Maritime Museum

Calling all teachers and educators!

Welcome to Planet Shark: Predator or Prey at the WA Maritime Museum.

Our latest “out of water” shark exhibition will take your students on a journey through millions of years of evolution. Your students will immerse themselves into the world of sharks as they venture through multiple galleries, including a walkthrough projection display of stunning HD underwater shark footage.

The exhibition is designed to be interactive, entertaining and educational for wide student exposure and application. Importantly, the exhibition has been designed and created around the fascination most students have with sharks and is designed to appeal to all student levels.

Whether sharks fill you with fear or fascination, Planet Shark: Predator or Prey will have your students captivated from start to finish.

The Planet Shark preview is an opportunity for teachers to explore the exhibition before they bring their class on an excursion.

It will include a welcome and exhibition introduction from WA Museum Curator of Fishes Glenn Moore.

Learning Resources will be available on the night as well as the Museum education team.

This preview is FREE for teachers only (TRBWA registration number may be requested).

Please note this is not a family event and children will not be admitted.
