ORCA offers schools, colleges and universities the chance to give students of all ages an unforgettable experience that will enrich their learning immeasurably.
Operating on ferries out of both Newcastle and Portsmouth, these trips combine ORCA’s background in citizen science with their experience of inspiring young people, showing them first hand conservation projects.
In October each year, hundreds of schools and thousands of students take part in ORCA’s Whale Education Month. This is an annual event with different topics each year. Although we encourage schools to deliver the materials in October, teachers can use the materials all year to inspire students about wonderful whales and dolphins.
Celebrate World Wildlife Day with your class in 2021 (4th October 2021)! Every October, ORCA produces a series of educational resources for schools and home educators, with the theme for 2021 being Incredible Journeys. These fun and interactive resources link in with the National Curriculum and provides students support in the topics of science, geography, maths and English. Don’t forget, you can view all resources from past Whale Education Month lessons below.
