Groups will also have the opportunity to come face-to-face with some freshwater turtles and caiman, pufferfish, and much more. The underwater tunnels run through the ocean tank at the heart of the aquarium, and offers captivating views of the reef and all the sea life that calls it home, including the loggerhead sea turtles, reef sharks, and shoals of colourful fish.

Cornish Seal Sanctuary

Groups will come face to face with the adorable rescued residents of the seal sanctuary and learn all about why they came to live at the Sanctuary. Your group will be able to follow the journey of rehabilitating seals in the Seal Rescue Centre & Hospital. You will have the opportunity to get hands-on at the interactive rockpool experience, and find out some amazing facts from an expert.

Eden Project

The Eden Project is a visitor attraction in Cornwall located in a reclaimed Kaolinite pit. The complex is dominated by two huge enclosures consisting of adjoining domes that house thousands of plant species, and each enclosure emulates a natural biome. The largest of the two biomes simulates a Rainforest environment and the second, a Mediterranean environment. The 35-acre site is filled with sculptures, play areas, vegetable gardens, restaurants and even a zip wire, all with environmental conservation, education and sustainability as their core message. The result is the world’s most exotic, scent-filled, fun, interactive, imaginative and sheer mind-blowing classroom on the planet!

Support your STEM classroom learning with a visit to the Goonhilly Earth Station. Choose from a 1 hour guided tour or a ‘Build a Satellite’ workshop.
