Ages 16 & Up: Ocean water covers 70% of the Earth’s surface and plays an important role in maintaining the global environment—from absorbing excess heat to safely storing carbon dioxide. However, ocean temperatures, currents, and sea levels are being drastically altered as the climate changes. Dr. James Brinson, Associate Professor of Ecology and the Environmental Science Program Coordinator at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College, will discuss the impact of these changes on critical marine ecosystems, local communities, and global systems which effect everyone’s lives.

Ages 13 & Up: In Kevin Costner’s 1995 cult classic Waterworld, “Dryland” is little more than a myth from the distant past, as the globe is covered by an endless ocean and surviving humans live on floating atolls. But when the Mariner, a solitary trader, stumbles upon a girl who is supposed to have a map to Dryland etched on her back, he is drawn into the struggle to keep her safe from a group of desperate pirates. Rated PG-13.
