Reef HQ Aquarium receives their 11th Pinnacle Award

If you can’t get to Townsville to visit us, we can visit YOU through our virtual connections program!

Since it's establishment, our Education team have taken the Great Barrier Reef to over 805 locations – 390 international locations across 19 countries, and to 415 locations within Australia!

Congratulations to the team who have received their 11th Center for Interactive Learning and Collaboration Pinnacle Award. This award recognises content providers from around the world who have received outstanding ratings on program evaluations completed by educators and activity director's.

The evaluations reflect the amazing ability to reach across the miles, making the best use of technology to bring our content alive. One of the CILC's members said,

'We have participated in other distance learning experiences and I found this to be superior. The vocabulary and content were age appropriate. The activities were fun and engaging. The information that was provided to us before was helpful so that we could have everything set up. The presenter was able to answer a lingering question that our class had not found an answer to." (Elementary School Teacher).

In 2018-19, Reef HQ Aquarium's outreach using the videoconferencing technology was used to deliver Reef education into 48 schools and events around Australia and the world, reaching over 2,500 participants.
