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.
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).
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
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).
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).
