Join me at 9:30 on World Ocean’s Day, June 8, 2016. I will be broadcasting an online classroom from the Ripley’s Aquarium in Toronto, Canada. I’ll be sharing my exploration work from the Royal Canadian Geographical Society’s Expedition of the Year in Bell Island Newfoundland. I’ll give a presentation about the WWII shipwrecks and a flooded mine followed by interaction with classrooms who have signed on for camera positions. Even if you can’t get a camera spot, join us for the broadcast or check it out later through Exploring by The Seat of Your Pants on You Tube.
June 8th is World Oceans Day and Exploring by the Seat of Your Pants is celebrating our oceans with a full day of Google Hangouts with ocean scientists, explorers and institutions from around the world. The day will consist of 24, 30 minute Google Hangouts spread out over 12 hours!
