Exploring Sea Science

Home/Exploring Sea Science

This page explores the very popular Sea Science Gallery, a collaboration between Galway City Museum and the Marine Institute, online for the first time ever! Here, we bring you entertaining activities and videos that can help you explore our beautiful and precious marine environment and learn all sorts of new marine facts.

See below our fact sheets and worksheets covering topics about the science of the sea – from plankton to plastic pollution; from ocean depths to ocean species. Print out the sheets, get informed, play bingo, do word searches and enjoy the virtual Sea Science Gallery!

There is a resource hub linking you to the Marine Institute and their new Oceans of Learning outreach programme as well as many more resources surrounding the marine environment.

When you complete the activities tag us with the hashtag #exploringseascience and share on facebook, instagram and twitter.  We’ll ‘sea’ you there!
