With post-graduate marine science students as mentors, the teams worked on the shore and in the laboratory utilising a wide range of tools and resources.
The programme engaged students in sensory exploration of the marine world, processes of thinking, science investigation planning practice and analysis, communication, review and reasoning as well as creative challenges to share their science in novel ways.
