Titanic Belfast’s Ocean Exploration Centre is delighted to join forces with the Loughs Agency’s Riverwatch, RSPB Northern Ireland, Ulster Wildlife and Queens University Belfast to bring two weekends of family-friendly activities.
Come and meet some of our amazing marine life in Riverwatch’s touch tank, investigate the uses of seaweed with Ulster Wildlife’s amazing seaweed hand spa, learn about the RSPB’s wonderful nature reserve right on our doorstep, and join the Ocean Exploration Centre’s crew in the experiments and demonstrations which explain some of the fascinating science behind how our oceans operate.
Find out more about how marine creatures live by meeting biologists who use computer technology to track and measure how animals move. See how the blending of technology and biology is rapidly changing how we think about ocean ecology. You’ll be able to try out the technology for yourself and you may even learn a bit about your own biology when we put a tracker on you!
Also on display will be a mini-exhibition of artwork by AFBI’s Artist-at-Sea, Alice Clark, whose work was inspired by the time she spent on-board AFBI’s research vessel, the RV Corystes
