Our STEAM activity for July celebrates National Marine Week. Our activity explores the different zones in our oceans and looks beneath the surface to discover the incredible creatures that call each zone home.

Over 70% of the Earth’s surface is covered by oceans. Even so, not much was known about what it was like deep under the sea at the time the first undersea telegraph cables were planned. The modern science of oceanography began at around the same time as these early cables were laid. Today, we know a lot more about the deepest parts of the oceans, and what lives there.
Did you know?
Some creatures that live in the Dark Zone and the Abyss, where little or no sunlight reaches, produce their own light by a chemical reaction. This is called bioluminescence. Some people think that because the ocean is so vast, bioluminescence might be the most common form of communication on Earth.
