"Secret Ocean 3D" at the Challenger Learning Center

Aug 14, 2015 - Nov 13, 2015 Daily showtimes at ChallengerTLH.com

Tallahassee
Jean-Michel Cousteau, son of ocean pioneer Jacques Cousteau, offers a breakthrough look at a secret world within the ocean that is perhaps the biggest story of all—that the smallest life in the sea is the mightiest force on which we all depend. Alongside marine biologist Holly Lohuis, he invites viewers to dive into this whole new world that will leave them in awe of the beauty and diversity of the oceans – the source of all life on our planet – and inspire an even stronger desire to protect what they have either seen for the first time or perhaps re-discovered along the journey. Narrated by renowned oceanographer Dr. Sylvia Earle, “Jean-Michel Cousteau’s Secret Ocean 3D” introduces audiences to over 30 species, illuminating behaviors captured for the first time thanks to the development of new tools that allow underwater filming in 3D, ultra-HD 5K, slow motion, macro, and with motion control, and takes them to remarkable and vibrant environments such as the Bahamas, Fiji, and Bimini.

Want to learn how to create 3D models that can be printed on a 3D printer? Making Awesome has announced a Blender class. This class, taught over four Saturdays, will teach you how to use Blender, a professional-level, open-source 3D modeling and animation suite to design, render and print your own 3D creations on a 3D printer. Each 2 hour class will consist of an hour of instruction and an hour of coaching. The class will be taught by the talented Kenyon Bertelsen. On the final class day, Making Awesome's 3D printer guru, Brad Harris, will be there to help students print their models and to answer questions about the 3D printers.
The class runs from 1PM until 3PM starting on August 15th, and continuing on August 22nd, August 29th, and September 5th.
Participants will need to bring a laptop capable of installing Blender, and with sufficient space. For Windows users, Blender requires Windows, 7, 8 or Vista. For Macintosh users, Blender requires MacOS 10.6 or above. If you're using a Linux laptop, most recent versions will work, however, you will need to install glibc 2.11. For more information on system requirements for running Blender, visit http://www.blender.org/download/.
The class is open to makers age 12 and up. Kids under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. Space in this class is limited and available on a first come basis.

Visit the Tallahassee Museum’s new “African Americans in World War II” exhibit on display in the Phipps Gallery July 1 through September 30!

The exhibit displays 40 photographs of how life was for men and women during the most widespread war in human history. Over 2.5 million African Americans served in all branches of service, and in all theaters of operations during World War II. Despite extensive discrimination and segregation, they met the challenge, persevered and served with distinction and honor. Many black infantrymen were involved in the war in Europe and the war in the Pacific. In addition, black support of war efforts from the home front was important to the success of allied forces.

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.
