The Palau Aquarium at Palau International Coral Reef Center (PICRC) hosted Ngaraard Head Start students and Palau Seventh day Adventist Elementary (SDA) School 3rd Grade class. On April 11th, PICRC staff greeted the Ngaraard Head Start students with their teacher and parents and provided an educational tour covering all the marine habitat exhibits at the Palau Aquarium. On April 14th, the SDA 3rd grade class accompanied by their teacher and parents toured the aquarium. As part of their class requirement, the class also completed a scavenger hunt activity to complement the tour.

School tours at the Palau Aquarium provide insights on several marine habitats; showcase several illustrative posters on research conducted by PICRC and historical information of Palau; as well as an interactive touch tank with marine invertebrates. A new attraction at the Aquarium is the Touch Panel which currently displays videos related to various marine conservation information and climate change issues. This Touch Panel will also have an additional element where visitors, especially students, will be able to take quizzes and play games related to the exhibits at the Palau Aquarium.

The visit of Ngaraard Head Start and SDA Elementary Students highlights the importance of the Palau Aquarium as an educational learning tool for students of Palau. Each year, the Palau Aquarium hosts numerous students from schools within Palau for tours and educational activities. PICRC is proud of the Palau Aquarium’s role in the community, and continuously work to update and improve the Palau Aquarium’s displays and information in an effort to educate and entertain its visitors.
