Home /  Courses And Programs / A Treasure Chest of Experiences: Deep Sea Exploration


This virtual exploration of the deep sea looks into the bizarre creatures that dwell in the abyss, from the dumbo octopus to the newly discovered ninja lanternshark. Explorers virtually pilot an underwater vehicle using the Scripps Institution of Oceanography DEEP Xbox game and learn firsthand about a recent expedition to the deepest ocean trench in the world—the Mariana Trench. From dive suits to landers and submarines, students learn about pressure/density relationships as they explore what makes research in these realms so challenging. Students create scientific journals to keep notes and drawings of creatures they encount. Learning comes to life as students create treasure chest multimedia boxes to hold their handcrafted creatures from the deep.
