Program image

Jump into the slimy, bumpy, spiny, rough, and often squishy world of marine invertebrates. There are more animals with no bones than their bony counterparts and many of these curious creatures live in the ocean. Join us as we take an in-depth look at some of these amazing invertebrates. Together, learners will examine animals including sea stars, octopus, and sea jellies to understand how these wigglie squgglie animals not only survive, but thrive in their ocean habitats.
