The ocean covers nearly 71% of the Earth, yet amazingly, only a small portion of the ocean has been explored! Scientists are continuing to explore the ocean’s biology, geology, chemistry, physics, and history – and now here’s a chance for YOU to dive in to this exploration! This two-part program begins with a visit to the Inner Space Center (ISC), in Narragansett, RI, where participants will learn about the tools and technologies that scientists use to explore the deep ocean and how animals, such as deep-sea anglerfish, have adapted to survive in extreme ocean environments.  Anglerfish are deep-sea predators that wave a light-producing organ (photophore) as a lure to attract its prey. In addition to being immersed in amazing ocean discoveries, program participants will also create their own papier mache anglerfish, starting the project at the ISC, and finalizing their creation during a second session at GSSNE in Warwick, RI.  Explore with us, and journey into the unknown ocean!
