Deep Ocean Lab with Greg Foot. What happens as you dive further and further into the deep dark ocean?
Join YouTuber & Blue Peter Science Guy, Greg Foot, for the story of his scientific adventure to the deep.
With experiments and stunning videos, Greg will show you the high-tech submersibles that took him down a crazy 1000ft into the Twilight Zone. He’ll explain the importance of our oceans, and – thanks to Greg’s work with the Blue Planet II team – uncover the effect we’re having on them. You’ll also get the chance to meet a creature from the deep!
This event is part of the 'Family Explorer Series' at The Festival of Curiosity, exploring real-life explorers from the Stars to the Sea and from the Zoo to your Garden.
