Video Webinar for Families: Natural History at Home – Lights, Camo, Attraction! Exploring Ocean BioluminescenceKids & Families, Webcasts & Online
Saturday, December 11, 2021, 11 AM – 12 PM
The exploration of natural history doesn't have to just happen at the museum — it can happen in your home too!
Join museum educators as they walk your family through science skill-building activities and ways to explore the natural world and collections.
During this program, families will explore a unique adaptation found among some of the creatures of the deep sea: bioluminescence! Ocean educator Lara Noren is back to share with us all about how bioluminescence keeps some animals safe, fed, and thriving in twilight zone of the ocean.
Please have the following supplies ready to go for each participant:
- Blank paper
- Coloring supplies (markers, crayons, colored pencils)
- Sturdy piece of paper (ex: paper sack, cardstock)
- Long piece of string, ribbon, yarn, or floss
How to Join: The program will be presented as a Zoom webinar. A webinar link will be sent to you and your family once you have registered.
Closed captioning and ASL interpretation will be available for this program.
