Science Detectives: Legends of the Briny Deep

  • Wednesday, October 19, 2022
  • 10:45am - 11:45am

Join us for classes designed especially for homeschool and track-out students. These 60-minute classes allow us to delve deeper into topics and incorporate additional learning experiences.

Ahoy Mateys! Join the Crew of the Flying Dutchman and discover the science behind the legends of the briny deep. Uncover the terrifying kraken and face off against a shark with the face of a goblin. Chase down the great white whale and escape the clutches of the fearsome sea serpent. Using hands-on activities, specimens and our own pirate daring, we’ll reveal the real-life animals that inspired the myths of Davy Jones’ Locker.

Participants must be 5-7 years old for this program.


Registration ends 48 hours prior to program start time.
