Deep Sea Days Exploration Weekend June 10-11 Lots of way cool creatures live way down deep in the ocean, but it's almost impossible for anyone to go see them. Still, a few lucky people HAVE made it down there, and this is your chance to meet some of them—plus others who made the equipment they needed for the trip. They're scientists and engineers from the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute, and they'll show you some fancy machines and tell you some fascinating stories. You might even win an exclusive tour of their amazing facilities! Whenever you come to the aquarium, be sure to get your free Official Explorer's Passport and bring the current Online Exploration Activity so you can collect cool passport stamps. And why not wear a special aquarium t-shirt when you're here?
