Discover the Deep – with Dynamic Earth & UHI Shetland

Saturday 18th February – 10 am – 4 pm

UHI Shetland, Scalloway Campus, Port Arthur

Join Dynamic Earth as we explore the depths thanks to our National Lottery Heritage funded ‘Discover the Deep’ project. After spending the week travelling around the schools of Shetland, we’ll be joining UHI Shetland at the Scalloway Campus on Saturday the 18th of February, where we’ll be bringing the deep-sea to you with our family open-day! Step into the rubber boots of a Shetland marine scientist, meet some real deep-sea specimens including the ferocious deep-sea lizard fish, pilot your own marine robot, discover the story of the HMS Challenger on its 150th anniversary, and listen to the sounds of our underwater world, as well as much, much more!
