New resources and regional focus for fisheries education website

​A $300,000 Woodside sponsorship deal has helped enhance our online fisheries teaching resource Marine Waters.

The upgraded website will now be able to deliver a strong regional focus and target a broader audience.

Marine Waters packs a wealth of lessons, fact sheets, posters, videos and other resources that support teachers delivering marine education programs around the State.

The online treasure trove of teaching resources has provided inspiration and learning for WA’s Kindergarten to Year 12 students for the last 10 years.

To ensure those who want to continue learning outside the classroom can continue to use the site, new activities and fact sheets have been developed for kids to conduct their own learning at home.

The website’s resources are a very popular part of the curriculum for WA schools and enhances students’ connection with the marine environment. The roll-out of the new site will be supported by professional learning workshops available to teachers, other educators and interested community groups.
