Mad Scientist
Life in the Sea Workshop

Children explore different ocean ecosystems and learn about the plants and animals that live there. Classifying creatures from sharks to sponges gives them a taste of ocean diversity. In Whales
to Scale, they compare shark and whale teeth and measure the size of these incredible predators. Hands-on activities teach the interconnectedness of an ocean food web and the consequences of overfishing.
