August 12 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm EDT
THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED
Learners will explore the tiny plants and animals that drift in the ocean at the mercy of the ocean currents. Whatever their size, they must avoid sinking too deep and must stay in the sunlit layers of the ocean. Youth will explore an incredible array of unique adaptations that help they avoid sinking and engage in a fun contest to design the slowest sinking plankton. Youth will enjoy story time reading Sea Soup: Phytoplankton and will explore pictures of real ocean drifters and will take home their plankton. This event will be in the Miller Branch Parking Lot.
