The monthly events will focus on current ocean topics with all of the great educational and fun tools the aquarium always has for families to enjoy.  There will be hands-on exploration, special activities, and opportunities to interact with the Scripps Oceanography scientists.

The first event will be held Saturday,  September 21 from 11 am to 3 pm.  The theme is “Diving into the Deep Sea”. This event will educate attendees about the ecology of rare ecosystems and the unusual creatures who live in them – how do they survive? how do they adapt for survival?

On Saturday,  October 19th from 11 am to 3 pm, another event will be held called “Snapshots of Scripps Science”.  Here you can view the many accomplishments and discoveries of Scripps scientists as well as learning how to use your own camera in underwater and no-flash photography (bring your own photo storage card).
