A visit to Seaton Jurassic is a perfect way to bring learning to life. We offer a range of sessions linked to the curriculum and explore the ecology, geology and history of the Jurassic Coast. If you have a particular area of the Biology or Geography curriculum you would like to cover please contact us to discuss how we can best meet your requirements. We can now also offer outreach sessions to your school.

Fossil Investigation

Discover the life story of Mary Anning and how her discoveries changed geology and science forever. Find out how fossils are formed, what they tell us about Seaton’s past and make your own fossil to take away. Investigate mystery fossils and use them to determine the adaptations of pre-historic animals.

Visit our local beach and explore Seaton’s coast to discover the importance of our coastline and what we can do to protect it. Find out how pebbles were created from our ancient cliffs and travelled for miles along the Jurassic Coast. Carry out a scientific experiment to test the influence of longshore drift.
