Unseen Oceans Educators' Evening

Part of Educators' Evenings

Triton submersible prowls the ocean depths. Very little light reaches 300–450 meters below the surface, but specialized lights help scientists see deep-sea fishes sitting on the ocean floor.

Join us on Friday, November 2 for an evening celebrating our latest exhibition Unseen Oceans This is an opportunity for teachers to view the exhibition, hear from the curator, network with other educators, and gather resources on how to use the exhibit with their students. Participants will receive Educator Guides and related student activities, including an essay writing contest for students in grades K-8.

A marvelous, alien world lies hidden beneath the sunlit surface.  With the use of 21st-century technologies like robotics, satellite monitoring, and more, scientists are revealing the unseen habitats of the oceans’ most mysterious animals and mapping remote, inhospitable areas in unprecedented detail.  Experience an ocean you never imagined in Unseen Oceans.
