Posted by Chris Owen on 16 July 2008

The marine section here at the museum have been exploring the sea floor around Scotland recently. Have a look at the video blog here to see what they were hoping to find on the trip. Check back soon for updates on the weird and wonderful things they actually found.

Welcome to the Explore the Sea Floor blog!

Marine scientists here at the museum have been studying the sea bed around the UK (and in other parts of the world as well!) and you can now see why and how it is done and what we have found. If you would like to ask a question to a marine scientist why not post a message on the blog and we will try our best to answer them.

Have you ever wondered what a marine scientist does?

Have a go at the activities on the Explore the Sea Floor web pages or request a free copy of the CD-ROM to become a virtual marine scientist.

Here are a few photos of museum scientists at sea and working in the laboratory.

The Explore the Sea Floor exhibition has moved to Kettering Museum following a successful time at the Kew Bridge Steam Museum. There is plenty of display space at Kettering which has allowed extra specimens to travel with the exhibition this time. The exhibition will be on display from 7th March to 12th April. Click here for more information about Kettering museums.

Explore the Sea Floor was present at the Association for Science Education Conference in Liverpool at the beginning of January. The project was met with enthusiasm from teachers and it is hoped that many more schools will use the resources in their classrooms.
