School Community

The Educational Department has, at the disposal of the Portuguese school community, a group of free educational programmes and activities, adapted to different school levels and aimed at complementing the official national school curricula.
 
According to each school rank and participation dynamics, these educational programmes are based on three different categories:
 
- Didactic Presentations
- Guided Tours
- Educational Sessions
 
The didactic presentations and guided tours take place at the stadiums and/or zoological areas of Zoomarine and are conduced by the educational team, with access to amplification equipment (whenever needed) and with the presence of some zoological specimens and well-being professionals (trainers, biologists, veterinaries and so forth). According to each programme, the educational team has access to support materials for a better content exposure and integration.
All these programmes are constructed and implemented according to five main key-concepts: morphology; distribution; nutritional requirements and habits; reproduction; and conservation of species/habitats/ecosystems.
