Life—Fish: Swimming in Schools
In this spectacular program, featuring our favorite finned friend of the water - fish! - we'll watch them climb waterfalls more than 400 feet high, jump on the sand, swim at speeds fasters than a cheetah and build a network of tunnels to share with siblings and parent. We'll see flying fish spread their wings to catch air, dragonfish dance in the sunset and many more breathtaking spectacles that happen daily in our oceans. From panoramic displays of peaceful coexistence to up-close encounters of territorial confrontation, this will be an exciting program for all ages.
This stunning high-definition movie will serve as the springboard for a lively discussion about the science behind the beauty and wonder of nature.
Enoch Yeung, a graduate student in the Division of Engineering and Applied Science at Caltech, will introduce the film and guide the post-screening discussion.
Recommended for ages 8 and up.
