Newport, OR, USA, (May 25, 2012) /PRNewswire/ — The Oregon Coast Aquarium (www.aquarium.org) will open summer travel with The Sea & Me, a new children’s interactive exhibit, Memorial Day weekend May 26-28, 2012. The opening of the exhibit coincides with the Aquarium’s 20th anniversary and will run through December 2013.
Opening weekend will include a performance by Radio Disney, face painting, a children’s craft, behind the scenes tours, Sea & Me giveaways, sea lion kisses/encounters and interpretive dives.
The Sea & Me is designed to be fun and imaginative, offering play experiences that are developmentally appropriate for children 4 to 10 years old, but kids of all ages will find interactive discoveries to enjoy.
“Visitors to The Sea & Me will delve into the ocean on our submarine, haul in a catch on our fishing boat, dig in the sand for seashore treasures and see, hear and touch some really cool animals,” said Kerry Carlin-Morgan, Aquarium Director of Education & Volunteer Services. Carlin-Morgan said the intent of The Sea & Me is to encourage kids and families to get outdoors, connect with nature and engage their curiosity.
Components of The Sea & Me include a Submarine Sea Lab, Fishing Gallery, play area, touch pool and marine displays. The Submarine Sea Lab allows children to explore the ocean through interactive displays and the power of imagination. Children can learn to be a deep water scientist aboard a mini submarine and “descend” into a coral reef. The submarine will feature a working periscope, simulated ocean views using live animals and modern technology with gadgets to push, flip, turn and twist.
