The Marine Discovery Centre, located in Henley Beach is the only coastal and marine educational facility for students and the broader community in South Australia. For Science Alive! 2021, the team will be bringing the beach to you at the Adelaide Showgrounds.
Thinking of becoming a future Marine Scientist or an Ocean Warrior? Kids will love the hands-on beachcombing experience; the handheld diving games investigating what marine species are found in South Australian waters; microscopes to view specimens up close; and Virtual Reality headsets which make you feel like you are underwater and diving at Rapid Bay, Baird Bay and Henley Beach. There will also be a selection of local marine wildlife specimens, bones and shells on display and so much more.
