Deep Sea Trash Creature Contest from Nauticus!
In connection with Nauticus’ summer blockbuster exhibit, Voyage to the Deep, we’re inviting students and their families to conceive, design, and build the most extraordinary sea creatures imaginable!
There’s just one catch though – you can only use recyclable materials found around your home. Oh yeah, and did we mention you’ll need to do a little research on how animals are able to survive in the deep, deep ocean?
So what will YOU imagine and design? A fearsome fish? An amazing aquatic? A magnificent mermaid?
POST YOUR IMAGES AND LET US FEATURE YOUR CREATURE!
· Research the unique adaptations that animals must have to survive in the deep ocean. We’ve included a few websites to get you started.
