Ocean Explorers


In April, Madison took everyone through a day in the life of a Giant Pacific Octopus. It was so much fun, she led a whole summer's worth of presentations. 

Post-program activities: Follow-up the presentation with a visit to our activity pages. They feature games, review sheets, links to live webcams at aquariums, and more! Visit frequently as additional resources and recordings are posted for every program. Some of those review questions (along with questions youth have asked during these programs) will be used in an upcoming TRIVIA contest!

Tune in here anytime to watch LIVE as marine biologists and oceanographers explore the deep sea aboard the Natutilus, a deep sea exploration vehicle
