From November 13 to 19, 2023

Science week

Once again, the Seville Aquarium participates in Science Week, the largest annual science dissemination event at the European level. An action in which a multitude of entities related to research participate and which is coordinated by the Discover Foundation.
This year, science week at the Seville Aquarium surprises us by showing us some of the adaptations and tools that the most amazing animals in the ocean have, to be able to survive in such a complex environment as water.

We will discover how some species survive in the dark; how the fish form those giant schools and move in unison; how cetaceans echolocate and how cuttlefish are able to camouflage and hide in a matter of seconds. A scientific experience that will not leave you indifferent.

The exhibition will be located in the basement of the aquarium, next to the seahorse installation and can be enjoyed from next November 13th to November 19th at the following times:

- Monday to Friday from 12:00 to 18:00
- Saturday and Sunday from 11:30 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.

Animal Tools

This activity will be divided into 3 blocks:

Do you see me or don't you see me?: We will learn how animals camouflage themselves in their environment thanks to their different shapes and we will give an introduction to bioluminescence.

5 senses or more: We will talk about the 5 senses of animals (taste, smell, sight, hearing and touch), in addition to knowing two extra senses, such as the ampullae of Lorenzini and the lateral line .

I like how you move: We will differentiate the different tails and fins of marine animals, in addition to knowing the usefulness of the swim bladder in fish and the buoyancy power of the Nautilus.

In each section we will learn through images and videos, in addition to seeing different biological samples, performing experiments, all accompanied by one of our technical biologists who are experts in dissemination with a free explanation.
