"Only a small fraction of the sea floor is mapped, and scientists have just begun to take stock of its deep-water habitat, and the delicate sponges, corals, rockfish and eels that live there. Efforts to understand it have shown far more life on the sea bottom than scientists expected."
Beneath the waves, flame-colored rockfish slipped past coral fans, brittle stars lay in wait for prey, and anemones swayed with the current.

This summer, we had our first hands-on science class for high school students! The students in this course were in 9th-10th grade and got to design and keep a soap box derby car!

"Revered as wild places of refuge and recreation, many of our National Parks exist to preserve the natural landscapes within their boundaries. Fortunately for us stargazers, in preserving the lands below, the National Park Service has also protected the purity of the night sky above.
The U.S. National Parks offer some of the darkest skies accessible to millions of visitors from all around the world. Many, like me, are coming from cities to enjoy the fresh air of nature, the wonders of an unspoiled natural landscape, and to be inspired by the ancient night sky."
On August 25th, 2016, the U.S. National Park Service is celebrating its Centennial. That’s 100 years of protecting the lands and the night skies so that people from around the world and all walks of life can come and see the stars!
