We had a Marine Biology workshop today from Oceaneers Education with 5th and 6th class where we learned how to construct an underwater microphone. Loraine Grant talked about different types of whale and the sounds they make underwater. We were particularly impressed by "The Star Wars vocalisation" sound that is made by the Minkie Whale. There are 24 species of whales and dolphins found off the coasts of Ireland (see our poster on our Biodiversity board for more information) and we created a hydraphone to listen to the sounds of an orca. We'd like to say thanks again to Loraine for her help and we give the workshop our "seal of approval"!
