ASTRONAUT OR AQUANAUT?: In this corner, we have ASTRONAUT in the spacesuit! In this corner, we have AQUANAUT in the wetsuit! Who will be the ultimate explorer?!? Join Jennifer Swanson, author of the children's book Astronaut-Aquanaut: How Space Science and Sea Science Interact, and marine biologist and aquanaut Brian Helmuth for a debate with interactive questions to help us compare and contrast the benefits of working in each extreme environment. This exciting event will have you soaring into space and diving deep into the ocean, learning about the ways in which exploration of inner- and outer-space can be surprisingly similar!
This program is best for children in fourth grade and older.
