Sea Days at Birch Aquarium

On October 21st, 2017 scientists from Scripps Institution of Oceanography did an outreach event at the Birch Aquarium for the general public. Nathalie Zilberman, Sarah Purkey and Megan Scanderbeg brought a sample Deep Argo SOLO float, LEGO Argo float models, and posters on Argo to the Birch Aquarium for visitors to see and learn about Argo. The animation produced by the Australian Argo team was playing on a monitor nearby and young visitors to the Aquarium got to decorate their own paper Argo float and deploy it in the paper ocean when they finished.
