Engage with Museum scientists in our free videoconferences.
Friday 8 November 2013, 11.00-11.45
Suitable for Key Stage 2 (7-11 years old)
In the deepest ocean, in the darkness and under huge pressure, you might think life is scarce. But you'd be wrong. The deep sea is one of the least explored areas on the planet, yet many strange and wonderful creatures live in this extreme environment.
Before the event we’d like you to make up and draw some animals that have adaptations that allow them to live in the deep sea. They can be as weird and wonderful as you like! Send them in to us and we’ll compare them to fish we have here in our collection (sometimes truth really is stranger than fiction).
During the conference, we will compare your ideas to real specimens here at the Museum. Fish curator Ollie Crimmen will be on hand to explain the animals’ adaptations and show some of the Museums's weirdest and most wonderful specimens.
To book please contact our booking line on 0207 942 5555 or for more information email us.
If you don’t have videoconference equipment, you can still join in with just an internet connection and webcam. We’ll talk you through the straightforward technical set-up process.
