K-6 teachers, join us this fall for Creep into the Deep: Journey into Midnight!
Despite being the largest habitat by volume on the planet, the water column remains one of the most poorly explored environments. This is especially true once one moves below 1000 m into the bathypelagic realm. Join world renowned deep-sea explorers Dr. Sonke Johnsen, Dr. Tamara Frank, Dr. Edie Widder, Dr. Heather Judkins, and Dr. Heather Bracken-Grissom as they shares the research and discoveries from the NOAA Ocean Exploration and Research supported expedition, Journey into Midnight: Light and Life Below the Twilight Zone

Creep into the Deep™, takes your STEM curriculum to new depths! Created in 2009, WhaleTimes’ Creep into the Deep creates a connection between scientists and students. It also lets you bring deep-sea animals, exploration, and science into your classrooms in a unique and inviting way. What’s in the deep that a kid would like? Animals dressed in red velvet, some as transparent as glass, and others that flash and ripple with light so bright they could light a room. Every animal and discovery in the deep is weirder and more wonderful than the next. Only 5% of the ocean has been explored. In order to protect the ocean, there is so much more we must learn. Join us on a mission to investigate how the cool creatures that creep in the deep survive!
Designed for 3-6th grade classrooms. By participating in the program, students become Virtual Members of a deep sea mission, receive daily emails from scientists, photos, and answers to their questions. Students even send their autographs into the abyss
