Aldine Discovers the Deep Sea

Boy in Deep Sea Diving GearThe Aldine Branch customers had a wonderful time as they visited with experienced diver and author, Jacqui Stanley. Mrs. Stanley covered a number of topics including what is needed to become a marine biologist, the current oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, and the equipment needed for deep sea exploration. She even brought her own diving equipment to share. Students also had a chance to experience what they would look like in some of that expensive gear!
