Cosmic Treats: The Dark Biosphere

Join us for another fantastic Cosmic Treats presentation! The Dark Biosphere: Exploring the Dark Ocean will be held on Thursday, May 25 at 6pm.

Although it was believed nothing could survive in the deepest part of the ocean (6.8 miles down), new technology has revealed amazing examples of life. The presenter for this program will be Dr. Amanda Martino, Assistant Professor of Biology, Saint Francis University.

This free family science program is sponsored by Saint Francis University’s Science Outreach Center. No signup is needed. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
