Whatever Floats Your Boat Regatta

Oct 3, 2015 12pm-3pm

FSU Coastal & Marine Laboratory, 3618 Coastal Highway 98, St. Teresa, Florida, 32358
It’s time once again for you to challenge your friends, your family, and your colleagues to build boats out of stuff that any normal person would take to the dump and enter them in the Whatever Floats Your Boat Regatta at the Florida State University Coastal and Marine Laboratory. Boats can be as artistic or as ugly as you want to make them. Just build ‘em and they will float . . . more or less.

You landlubbers will be busy ashore cheering on the captains and crews of these outrageously constructed vessels as they sail, row, or scull around the course, topple over, or slowly sink into Apalachee Bay. Watch the Regatta from various shoreline vantage points around the lab on either side of the boat basin. Enjoy good food, have loads of fun, all while learning about recycling and how to reduce the impact of plastics in our marine environments.

"Press the Chest" CPR 2015

Jun 27, 2015 10 a.m. - Noon

Donald L. Tucker Civic CenterTallahassee, Fl
If your loved one collapsed in front of you from sudden cardiac arrest, would you know what to do? Each year in the U.S. EMS treats nearly 400,000 people who suffer sudden cardiac arrest at home, at work, or in public locations. Providing CPR and an AED (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Automated External Defibrillator) to an adult who has collapsed from cardiac arrest can more than double that person’s chance of survival.

In Leon County, only 20% of cardiac arrest victims receive CPR from bystanders prior to EMS arrival. That’s only one in five people. Without immediate, effective CPR from a bystander, a person’s chance of surviving sudden cardiac arrest decreases up to 10 percent per minute.

Join Leon County EMS for “Press the Chest” CPR 2015, a free community-wide CPR training event. Participants will learn “Hands-Only CPR” as well as AED use and choking techniques. This is not a certification event.

Each participant will receive an American Heart Association personal “CPR Anytime” kit which contains a CPR manikin, DVD, and educational materials and supplies. These kits are for the participant to keep and they are encouraged to train family and friends.

“Walking With Dinosaurs: Prehistoric Planet 3D” at the Challenger Learning Center

Apr 17, 2015 - Apr 17, 2016 April 17, 2015-April 17, 2016

Challenger Learning Center of Tallahassee, 200 S Duval St Tallahassee, FL
For the first time in movie history, audiences will truly see and feel what it was like when dinosaurs ruled the Earth.

Recent discoveries and a breakthrough in technology will introduce new and unique dinosaurs that are more real than ever before and put moviegoers in the middle of a thrilling prehistoric adventure, where an underdog dinosaur triumphs against all odds to become a hero for the ages.

Our main characters are a herd of large, frilled, plant eating dinosaurs – Pachyrhinosaurus. The film follows their youngsters through the seasons and the challenges of growing up and establishing themselves in this prehistoric world. From the moment they hatch, they face predators, extremes of weather and natural disaster as they fight for survival.
Walking with Dinosaurs: Prehistoric Planet 3D is an immersive 3D experience – the characters are animated throughout against real backgrounds. It’s the most authentic dinosaur experience ever to be seen on the giant screen. The animals’ bodies and movements have been precisely built up from fossil evidence and their behavior is derived from both paleontology and detailed knowledge of the behavior of modern animals. Even their body language has been inspired by what we know of real animal behavior and gives these creatures an amazing realism.

Join a team of researchers as they unlock the secrets of the humpback and find out what makes humpbacks the most acrobatic of all whales, why only the males sing, and why these intelligent 50-foot, 48-ton animals migrate more than 6,000 miles every year.
