Ocean explorers, Wayne and Karen Brown, bring their world-wide ocean explorations to life with their high-energy, fast-paced, multimedia presentations that combine actual specimens, biological models, life-sized (or larger-than-life) inflatable animals, unique props, costumes, creative dramatics, storytelling techniques, high-tech SCUBA diving equipment, audience participation, and breathtaking underwater photography.
Get your students excited about science! Our nationally-acclaimed school assembly programs are designed to complement school curricula. Each themed program teaches science concepts established by State and National Science Content Standards. Included teacher's curriculum guide and student workbook provides hands-on, cross-curricular classroom activities. (Great for Ocean Weeks, Red Ribbon Week, Award Assemblies, Science Nights, Career Days, and Family Fun Nights!)
Family Fun Nights:
Because adults LOVE our presenatations as much as children we are a popular Family Fun Night event at many schools! Our Family Fun Night includes one of our shows AND extra displays and show-and-tell items. Plus we are always happy to stay after our show to talk to students and their moms and dads, answer questions, and allow time for photos with our life-sized, inflatable animals. Some schools use their Family Fun Night as a fundraiser by selling tickets or having food sales.
Children's Library Programs:
Bring us to your library and watch your marine life books fly off your shelves! Our nationally-acclaimed children's library programs are fun and fascinating for your patrons. We motivate your young patrons to learn about the oceans by reading about them from the books in your library! Included librarian's guide and kids' fun book provide program information, vocabulary, a book list, and hand-outs that include a story to read, puzzles and a picture to color.
In addition to our Ocean Adventure underwater "expedition" programs, we offer presentations from our collection of programs that we present as onboard expedition cruise ship naturalists and historians. Our repertoire of presentations includes marine science, history and travelogues.
