It was just five days ago we posted that the TN LC would host a DEN Event at the TN Aquarium on September 8th in Chattanooga, TN. We have space for 30, and we are over half-way there now! Thanks, TN DEN!
During our workshop, we will experience one of the many interactive sessions offered to kids across all age groups. Here are just a few of the possibilities:
Grades K-2 – Kids can learn about jellyfish in the Jellyfish Dream. You can join J.J., a young and curious child as he travels through the ocean meeting various speciies of jellies.
Grades 3-5 – Kids in these grades will work together to build a jellyfish by becoming the different parts of a jelly that swims, stings, eats and, yes, excretes!
Grades 6-8 – Students can become corals as they play a game of chance. Will they find food and reproduce? Or will a hurricane or wrecked ship cause an early demise? Playig Coralopoly will help students see how humans can impact corals both negatively and postively.
Grades 9-12 – Students conduct hands-on experiments to determine levels and types of water pollution as they set out on the Seahorse Rescure Mission.
And don’t forget that you can plan an overnighter at the Aquarium and "swim with the fishes."
Did I mention that the Aquarium now has penguins? You can see how they created their :30 penguin commercial (a spaghetti western), by using one of DEN’s favorite props…the blue screen. Click here for more info.
You can continue signing up at this blog, or the previous blog for the TN DEN LC. Just give us your name AND your email address. We’ll be in touch to let you know who the lucky 30 will be on the 8th!
