Take a virtual journey down to the depths of the sea floor and explore the unique ecosystem of a hydrothermal vent. Join scientist Janet Voight as she discusses the creatures that live near these vents and how they have evolved adaptations to their dark, harsh chemical environment.
Using a 60-minute live broadcast, students can see, hear, and interact with researchers during a behind-the-scenes "visit" to one of the Museum’s state-of-the-art laboratories. In addition to the live broadcast, participating classrooms are supplied with grade-level appropriate supplemental educational activities and material to increase student learning before and after the broadcast.
