Family Fun Night

RYE —Everyone thinks of pumpkins and ghosts at Halloween, but the Seacoast Science Center is taking the spooky fun under the sea! The entire family will be engaged in learning fun on Thurs., October 17. The evening begins with a pasta dinner. Then, children will join Center naturalists to learn about venomous creatures of the sea and be engaged in spooky crafts and activities, fitting for the season.

Adults will join naturalist, writer and underwater photographer Paul Erickson for an audio-visual presentation and conversation about the venomous creatures he has encountered during his diving adventures beneath the waves around the world. Come discover how stingrays, cone snails, sea snakes and other creatures use highly evolved venoms to compete and survive in their undersea jungles and how medical researchers are using some of the world's deadliest venoms to relieve pain and save lives.
