Our kids are the future!
Dolphin Academy developed the educational school project ‘Bayena i Dolfein’ (Whales and Dolphins) in 2005 with the purpose of giving every child in Curaçao the chance to learn more about dolphins, whales and marine life in a fun and educational way. The students are provided with a deeper understanding while creating a platform of awareness about their surroundings and the beauty and uniqueness of Curaçao.
The school project includes:
- Work booklets for students with fun facts and information
- A teacher’s guide with answers, additional information and activities
- A Dolphin Masterclass given by a guest teacher of Dolphin Academy
- A visit to the Dolphin Academy and Curaçao Sea Aquarium, including transportation and a dolphin ‘kiss’ for every student
- Students will get a drink and a snack and the printed-out dolphin ’kiss’ picture during their visit.
The teaching materials are available in Dutch and Papiamentu for elementary schoolchildren in grades 3 to 8. Each curriculum covers one or more aspects of marine life per grade and fits within the educational subject area ‘Nature and Technology’.
