We are excited to share a range of virtual resources and experiences to connect you with Voyage to the Deep — from home!
MPM Exhibit Connection
The Milwaukee Public Museum's Living Oceans exhibit has ten portholes that together present different habitats, or plant and animal homes, in the ocean. Use our guide at home to learn more about ocean habitats, or use it when next visiting MPM as you move through the Living Oceans exhibit.
Dive Into Density
Try this at-home experiment! If you want to take your own "voyage to the deep," you’ll need to know about buoyancy. Use this activity to explore how density determines whether an object will sink or float.
Get to the root of how submarines work with this easy experiment you can tackle right in your own kitchen. All it takes are a few simple items from the pantry (a carrot, some toothpicks, and baking soda) and a little water to reveal the fascinating science behind how submarines use ballast to create just the right amount of buoyancy!
