Book in for our facilitated school program All Aboard! 18th Century Maritime Exploration where students learn about the voyage of HMS Pandora.

Program overview

During this facilitated school program, students will learn about the voyage of HMS Pandora, a British naval ship wrecked on the Great Barrier Reef in 1791, and participate in a series of hands-on activity stations that introduce them to the daily life and chores of different crew members on board an 18th Century sailing ship. They will then explore the Pandora Gallery to understand the role of maritime archaeology in revealing the past and complete their seafarer’s ticket.

Learning outcomes

Students will:

  • describe and explain the roles of different crew members aboard an 18th Century sailing ship
  • locate and collect information to make observations about the story of the Pandora and daily life of the crew
  • understand and explain the role of maritime archaeology in interpreting the past.
