Free*

“Seeing the Blue Serengeti: Understanding Life in the Open Ocean” with Randy Kochevar of Tagging of Pacific Predators (TOPP), a project of the Census of Marine Life, managed in collaboration between NOAA’s Pacific Fisheries Ecosystems Lab, Stanford’s Hopkins Marine Lab, and University of California, Santa Cruz’s Long Marine Laboratory. TOPP researchers attach satellite tags to 22 different species of top predators that roam the Pacific Ocean, including elephant seals, white sharks, leatherback turtles, squid, albatross and sooty shearwaters. Data from the tags is transmitted via Argos, a polar-orbiting satellite, giving scientists a picture of the species’ migration routes and ecosystems.

The Exploratorium’s Lab and Lunch is a free lunchtime series for adults that explores new work and collaborations between visiting scientists, educators, or artists and Exploratorium staff. Spend your lunch break in the Exploratorium’s beautiful Bay Observatory gallery and learn about new research and work-in progress, see demos and meet visiting scientists. The series is funded by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation.

*There is no cost to attend the Lab and Lunch program. If you wish to also visit the Exploratorium, you must purchase a general admission ticket.
