SciWorks presents Ocean Commotion Day on June 28

By Staff
SciWorks is inviting their visitors “dive into the wonders and mysteries of the sea” at Ocean Commotion Day on Saturday, June 28 from 1:00-5:00pm. Interactive stations around the museum will feature activities, crafts, and demonstrations for all ages which will illustrate the ways in which the ocean shapes the Earth, its climate, and our lives.

Visitors will discover the diversity of ocean life and learn more about marine mammals, and educators from the NC Museum of Natural Sciences in Raleigh will present special programs inside their Geodome Immersion Theater. All activities are included with museum admission.

Phyllis Weatherly-Rosner, SciWorks Educator and coordinator of the event, says, “People are naturally fascinated by the sea, but few of them realize how essential the ocean is to all of us and how much remains unknown about this frontier. I hope we will inspire some future marine researchers during our Ocean Commotion.”
