Special Exhibition Coming Soon to Discovery Place Science

Experience an ocean you never imagined! Earth is truly an ocean planet. More than 70 percent of the Earth’s surface is covered by oceans, yet surprisingly little of these vast realms has been explored—until now. Using 21st-century technologies like robotics, satellite monitoring, miniaturization and high-definition imaging, ocean exploration has embarked on a new age of discovery. Dive in this summer!
