National Marine Centre Education survey
Overlooking the Bass Rock and the Firth of Forth, the Scottish Seabird Centre is an environmental conservation and education charity based in North Berwick, with up to 270,000 visits a year.
We recognise that focusing on seabirds only tells part of the picture and, in line with what our visitors have told us they want, we intend to become a national marine centre for Scotland. Not an aquarium but a centre for discovery and exploration, helping people to get under the surface of our seas, to better appreciate and understand Scotland's amazing marine environment, wildlife and resources.
As part of this, we also want to expand our work with schools in Scotland, to help more young people understand our ocean: not just its amazing wildlife, but its role in climate change and weather patterns, oxygen production, food webs, the energy it can produce, or in inspiring literacy and literature, art and more.
We want to know how you, the experts, think this should be done. We would like to hear your views whether you have visited the centre or not, regardless of what age or subject you teach, if you teach in a classroom or somewhere else, if you are a probationer through to head teacher.
We think the survey will take about 15 minutes.
