Dive Deep at BCPL!

by |

Boone County Public Library and Duke Energy invite ages 6 and older to explore the mysteries of the ocean in Extreme Deep: Mission to the Abyss, on display at the Main Library (1786 Burlington Pike) through Jan. 7, 2018.

Explore newly discovered life forms, shipwrecks and close-up views from deep-sea research submersibles.  “Fly” a remotely operated vehicle and observe the technology that allows us to travel to the ocean floor through the recreation of the interior of an alvin personnel sphere.  Watch through a four-inch viewport window as you attempt to operate alvin’s robotic arm to pick up lava rocks and clams from the sea floor.  It’s not as easy as it looks!
