Winter/Spring 2015

 

January 21, 2015 – Ocean Exploration!

The Ocean plays a role in everything- from the air we breathe to the daily weather- yet we know very little about our blue planet.  Come explore with us as we journey into the shallows and depths of the ocean to investigate how it helps shape our daily lives!

            K-2nd     $12.00            3rd-5th      $12.00          6th – 8th     $12.00

 

February 18, 2015 – Invertebrates

Over 98% of the species on Earth are invertebrates. These numerous creatures lack a backbone, but that doesn’t mean they’re spineless or indefensible. From the deepest seas to the our sandy shorelines, invertebrates tough it out using exoskeletons, shells, and in some cases, even glass spicules. Get up close and personal with some invertebrates and investigate what makes these “boneless” creatures extreme survivalists.

            K-2nd     $12.00            3rd-5th      $12.00          6th – 8th     $12.00

 

March 25, 2015 – Guardians of the Sea, Pt. 1

The ocean covers 70% of the Earth’s surface and contains 97% of the planet’s water. We depend on the ocean for our food, air, weather, fun, travel, and climate. When the ocean isn’t healthy, we aren’t healthy. Marine debris (trash), and other ocean pollution, has become a serious problem over the decades as we neglect our ocean and use our water ways as dumping grounds.  During March and April, students will become “Guardians of the Sea” as they learn about marine debris, investigate its impacts and identify ways to keep our ocean healthy.  This program will include “at home” activities and challenges that will be introduced on March 25th and revisited on April 15th when the students meet again.

            K-2nd     $12.00            3rd-5th      $12.00          6th – 8th     $1200

 

April 15, 2015 – Guardians of the Sea, Pt. 2

Students will get closer to becoming “Guardians of the Sea” as they return with their projects from the March program and we explore solutions and actions to keep our oceans healthy!

            K-2nd     $12.00            3rd-5th      $12.00          6th – 8th     $12.00
