INTO THE DEEP is Titanic Belfast’s annual marine festival. This year we’re delighted to be involved with our marine discovery tank. Visitors are encouraged to dive into the depths, learn how we explore this alien landscape and discover more about the mysterious undersea world.
This year, the family-friendly festival is focussing on some of the largest and most exciting sea creatures to be found on our doorstep. The Andrews Gallery will host an exhibition of life size, inflatable whales and dolphins, a variety of talks from marine experts, marine survival demonstrations which stem from Titanic’s legacy, a mini rock pool aquarium, everyday beach finds, and an opportunity to get hands-on and conduct your own marine science experiments as well as marine-themed arts & crafts – there is something to entertain young and old!
For adults, they will have the life-size exhibition, with background information on these amazing marine creatures, ‘taster’ talks from various marine experts, and science experiments. There will also be interactive displays from EnAlgae (creating fuel from seaweed) and Survitec (marine rescue equipment specialists).
To captivate younger guests they have a Kid Zone, with storybook corner, ‘shark attack’ mini-ball pool game, jigsaws and other games. For the more intrepid young explorers (8-10 year olds), they have marine-themed arts & crafts activities, Andy’s amazing collection of beach finds, Clayrazy (make a take-home piece of modelling clay art). With exciting, hands-on science experiments, everyone will have the opportunity to investigate some of the principles behind ocean exploration and shipbuilding.
We look forward to seeing you there!
