What lies beneath the ocean? Marie Tharp wanted to find out! She set out to map the bottom of Atlantic – something no one had ever done before. Join us as we make our own maps, explore the ocean, and learn her story.


In the US, women are 48% of the workforce but only 27% of the STEM careers. This family-friendly program explores a different science-loving lady each session through story, art, and more!


Registration is for one child with an adult. Adult must stay for the duration — this is not a drop-off program.
