Event Details

Events at SierraAbyssal Animals: Creatures of the Deep

As this is an open house style event, activities throughout the two-hour workshop will be offered such as Museum tours, a StoryTime presentation of How Deep in the Ocean?: Ocean Animal Habitats by Monika Davies, a microscope study of dinoflagellates and other bioluminescent algae, a *Deep Sea Gallery photo exhibit, and Lego™ submarine design! An anglerfish arts and crafts maker station will be available and children can also assist our Zoology professors in dissecting SQUID during a hands-on laboratory!

Snacks will include water (naturally) and oceanic photic zone Jello™ cups.

Recommended Age 5+

*Photos of deep sea creatures will be on exhibit in large format and may be frightening to very small children; or they might think that they are ugly-cool monster fish! Either way, parental discretion is recommended.

“It’s the perfect weekend activity for families, grandparents, scout groups, and home schools.”

The Museum will be open for all to walk around to see the exhibits.

Sponsored by: Sierra College Natural History Museum
