The newest addition to the Flandrau Science Center & Planetarium brings deep-sea adventure to the University of Arizona campus.
Lurking just out of sight on the University of Arizona campus is a giant squid, waiting to be discovered by visitors of all ages.
Made of foam and epoxy, the life-size model of one of the ocean's most mysterious creatures can be found as part of Flandrau Science Center & Planetarium's newest exhibit, "Undersea Discovery." Open just in time for summer, "Undersea Discovery" takes visitors on a journey from the ocean shore to its rarely seen depths, providing a look at the colorful animals and plants that make up the vast waters of the world.
"'Undersea Discovery' is the perfect opportunity to engage and learn a little bit about the ocean," said Bill Plant, Flandrau exhibits director. "We hope that people will walk away with an appreciation for just how beautiful the world's oceans are, and how important they are to the health of the planet."
