Unless your classroom has a pool, we must take the class to SCUBA!
A Discover SCUBA class fits well into many of the sciences, mathematics and physical education. It’s amazing what SCUBA can do! Our Discover SCUBA program combines a classroom component to discuss with students the basic skills and safety precautions of diving. Then, we’re off to the pool (pool and classroom sessions can be done as much as a week apart)!
At the pool, we introduce the basic SCUBA skills and try them out in the water. After we have some of the basic skills down, there may be time for a few fun experiments. Once students have completed the first pool session, an optional second session can focus more on the science (and FUN!) now that they have the skills down.
NOTE: Discover SCUBA IS NOT a certification and does not qualify students to dive without supervision or in open water.
Working on something special with the class? Do the students have some fabulous ideas? Let them develop their own experiments and bring them to the pool session, or we can provide experiments related to a variety of topics.
There is nothing like breathing underwater for the very first time. It takes a little getting used to –after all, human beings weren’t designed to do that – but after a few minutes of awestruck wonder, most participants realize how easy SCUBA diving really is.
You learn the basics you need to dive under the direct supervision of a PADI Professional. One thing you’ll learn is that you really can breathe underwater and whether you like doing that or not.
You will learn what wearing SCUBA equipment feels like and how easy it is to move around underwater while wearing it.
Find out what it’s like to breathe underwater and learn whether you can be comfortable there.
Learn some basic skills and safety rules that will carry over to your full SCUBA certification course when you take the next step. All the equipment you will need is included in a Discover SCUBA Diving experience. You’ll use all the basic SCUBA gear including a mask, snorkel and fins, a buoyancy compensating jacket that also carries your SCUBA tank, a SCUBA regulator to breathe from and instrumentation to monitor depth and air supply.
Just your willingness and undivided attention
