Participants will learn about the physical and biological characteristics found in the deep sea, as well as how these properties give way to the adaptations of the animals that call these waters home. Participants will have the opportunity to do several hands-on activities and at-home experiments to better understand this harsh, and relatively unknown, ecosystem. Finally, participants will discover what it means to be a deep sea scientist and design a prototype of a deep sea submersible in order to gain a better understanding of what scientists must do to explore the vast depths of the ocean!
This program is for ages 8 to 10 and meets for one week, Monday through Friday, from 9:00AM to 12:00PM, with 1-2 breaks for hands-on activities (with your Mote Educators on stand-by to chat and help with any questions).
OSM is a virtual program coming to you this summer. Participants connect with Mote Educators to learn about various topics, try hands-on activities, and interact with like-minded peers. These opportunities allow kids to learn about the ocean from the comfort of their own homes. Siblings receive 50% off registration! Please email email@example.com with any questions.
It’s going to be an “OSM” summer!
