Using interactive exhibits, students learn about the intelligence and biology of marine mammals, as well as how researchers study them. Kids get the answers to all of their questions about marine mammals and get involved with the activities. The program’s showstopper is a life-sized inflatable right whale. This program takes place in any large meeting area such as a cafeteria or auditorium.
