The ocean has always offered bottomless depths of mystery and intrigue. Most of our questions about the ocean can be answered through science. To learn about the science of the ocean below come check out a Special STEM Sunday: Science Under the Sea. On Sunday, December 2, stop by WonderLab Museum of Science, Health and Technology and learn about the ocean through hands on science activities designed by students in Indiana University Service Learning Program.
“This collaboration between WonderLab and IU really gets to the core of WonderLab’s dedication to hands on learning for all ages,” Emmy Brockman, WonderLab Museum Educator, said.
Guests will experiment with blubber simulations and attempt to clean up an oil spills in salt water.
They will also discover how different daily use items contribute ocean pollution and specifically affect jellyfish.
“These types of activities are great because they are really hands-on with the topic of oceans and ocean science. That’s important for kids living in a land locked area like Indiana,” Brockman said.
Special STEM Sunday: Science Under the Seas is on Sunday, December 2 from 1:30-4:30 pm. This is a drop in event and is free with admission to the museum. STEM Sunday events are sponsored by Cook Medical and CFC Properties, Inc.
