Birthday Parties

Science parties at Project Oceanology are always oceans of fun! All parties include a hands-on activity with a variety of ocean creatures from our seawater tanks plus your chosen activity from one of our marine science themes. Our marine scientists tailor programs to the educational level of the group.

Plankton Pandemonium
Get up close and personal with some of the ocean's smallest creatures using our microscopes. Create your own plankton model for action-packed plankton races (suitable for grades 1 and up).

Seals Rule!
Explore how these mammals adapt to their wintry wet lifestyles without the benefit of shelter or heat. Discover how they use senses and sound to get around. Here's your chance to act like a seal (suitable for grades 1 and up)!

My, That's a Lovely Fish You're Wearing!
Using a technique inspired by the ancient Chinese traditon of fish printing, discover the artist in you as we make colorful masterpieces on t-shirts (suitable for grades 1 and up).

Phish Physics
We all want to go swimming on a hot summer day, but how do fish handle our cold Connecticut winters? Using live fish discover how changes in H2O temperature effect how fish breathe, eat and live (suitable for grades 3 and up).

How Come I Float?
Discover the principles of buoyancy and the science behind why some things sink and others float. You will build your own miniature submarines. We will then put our diving creations to the buoyancy test (suitable for grades 3 and up).

Parties include:
  2 hour science program conducted by marine scientists
  use of oceanographic and laboratory equipment
  hands-on activity with a variety of ocean creatures from our seawater
  1/2 hour use of room for celebration
  maximum of 25 party guests, not including adults
