NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer
The deep sea is pitch black, freezing cold, and with crushing pressures—so how do we explore these extreme depths? Join us for an exciting weekend at the Exploratorium, where the NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer—the only federal vessel dedicated to ocean exploration—will be docked from December 9–10. Hear from scientists and explorers from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA): what technology enabled them to collect data from the deep sea? What lifeforms did the ship encounter? And just how did they get their exploration careers started?
How and why do we explore the ocean? Join scientists returning from a deep-sea exploration expedition and others as we discuss the intriguing world of the deep sea.
Learn more about NOAA educational resources that are available to teachers at no cost. This talk will be geared towards teachers and informal educators, but anyone interested is welcome.
Come talk to ocean explorers and others about the deep sea, ocean careers, teacher resources, community science, national marine sanctuaries, and more.
