Course Description: Come learn about the ocean and the scientific principles taught in PBS’s educational 1984 series “Voyage of the Mimi.” The premise of this series is a ship taken out to sea by scientists taking a census of humpback whales. Though this series is a bit dated in technology, it is full of great information!

This course will take each episode and dive further into the lessons taught throughout the series, everything from ocean topography, weather, tracking of marine wildlife, survival techniques, and even a bit about the deaf. This series touched on so many topics and will be sure to engage your children as they learn from this Oceanography series and the hands-on lessons involved.
