Oceans ALIVE! in the Explore Science Zone

July 30 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 2:00 pm, repeating until September 5, 2022

An event every day that begins at 2:00 pm, repeating until September 5, 2022

Join us in the Science Gallery this summer for Oceans ALIVE! in the Explore Science Zone! This hands-on workshop gives visitors the opportunity to program a RiverBot (line tracking robot) to gobble up plastic garbage in a river; use handheld microscopes to investigate aquatic organisms and microplastics samples up close; and then test their knowledge with our water trivia game.

Open daily starting July 1, from 11 am – 12:30 pm, and 2 – 5 pm.

 

The health of the global ocean and freshwater ecosystems, as well as the biodiversity they each sustain, are critical for our community, cultural, and economic well-being. Pollution, climate change, habitat loss, and many other factors related to human activity pose a risk to our water systems and the species that live there. Action must be taken to not only protect these species, but to actively rebuild their populations.

The issue of plastic pollution is a growing problem. Scientists have predicted that by the year 2050, there could be more plastic in the global ocean than fish (by weight). Plastic debris can lead to suffocation and entanglement for marine species. Its ingestion by wildlife can lead to starvation, stunted growth, and reproductive problems; plastics also pose a threat to human health as toxins and microplastics are introduced into our food web.

Local waterways flow into watersheds that eventually lead to the ocean, acting as an avenue for any pollution or debris left to travel. Bottom line: we are all connected and our actions matter!

Dive into this hands-on workshop, developed by the Canadian Museum of Nature and Ingenium to promote the importance of aquatic health throughout Canada.
