Virtual Team Leaders!
The goal of Creep into the DEEPEND is to get students to understand there’s an entire fascinating and important world deep in the sea. There, a variety of fascinating animals thrive. It is also where our DEEPEND Science Team studies. Our Taking Science Deeper curriculum is designed to provide a variety of activities you can incorporate into your curriculum and highlight the animals or research of the Team. Plus, we have videos, coloring sheets, and DEEPEND Teaching modules available for background information and activities for older students and much more.
