Event Details

Let’s simulate an oil spill in a large container and then try to clean it up. Let our inner scientists out and think up ways to help clean up oil spills which harm our marine ecosystems.


The bottom of the ocean is full of many, many things including mountain ranges, fish that can see in the dark, volcanoes, shipwrecks, and more! The bottom of the ocean is vast and deep, but today we’re going to focus more on something that is found in more shallow water, reefs! There are many different types of reefs, there are three types of natural reefs, barrier, atoll, fringe, and even man-made ones! Reefs that are man-made may be accidental such as a boat sinking or more purposeful such as decommissioned MTA subway cars! How cool is that?! There are subway cars on the bottom of the ocean to help make a home for the many animals that live there.
