Meet a Scientist: Strange & Beautiful Creatures of the Deep

Join us for an online, hands-on workshop just for kids! Presented by a Scientists and Innovators in the Schools (SIS) volunteer, this 10 minute presentation, followed by a live game, fits with grade 3 science, but all curious young scientists are welcome to join and encouraged to do so with an adult. Recommended for ages 4 - 8


Learn about some of the amazing creatures that live in the ocean, then test your knowledge through a fun game of Ocean Life Kahoot!


Dwight works for Ocean Networks Canada, one of the world leaders in ocean observing technology, monitoring the west and east coasts of Canada and the Arctic to collect real-time continuous open data. Dwight sees the ocean as our planetary life support system. Because it’s incredibly important to #knowtheocean, he often visits schools and community groups to talk about the ocean and how we can protect it.
