Exploris is the perfect venue for an Educational or group visit for all ages with various activities including:
A chance for your group to discover a variety of living animals at close hand. For example observe Rays, Starfish and Sea Urchins. Exploris Discovery Pools are run by experienced guides who help to break down inhibitions and develop an appreciation of nature.
A guide leads your group on a journey through the aquarium starting with displays focusing on Strangford Lough, moving on to the Irish Sea via Exploris themed display tanks. Also learn about seal rehabilitation from the rescue of seals to their release back into the wild.
Shore walks are available at certain times depending on the tides in Strangford Lough. These afford pupils the opportunity to learn about life on the shore. Educational staff accompany your group to a local rocky shore to study living things in their natural habitat.
Use the Exploris Educational Suite for one of our themed workshops, Conservation, Pollution and The Seashore.
Headteachers- Why not use our facilities for one of your INSET days!
