Logo: Ocean CommotionThe Louisiana Sea Grant College Program was proud to host Ocean Commotion 2013 at the LSU Pete Maravich Assembly Center on Tuesday, October 22, 2013. Each year Ocean Commotion brings about 3,000 area students, teachers and chaperones to LSU to learn about our coast and sea from about 65 exhibitors.

Exhibits are provided by LSU researchers and public and private organizations. Exhibit viewing is divided into two time slots, each two hours in length, with the early time slot reserved for grades 5-8 students (8:45-10:45) and the other reserved for K-4 students(11:30-1:30).

The primary purpose of Ocean Commotion is to give students the chance to learn about and touch the products of the sea and coast—the aquatic animals, plants, and minerals—upon which Louisiana's citizens are so dependent.

Would you or your organization like to volunteer to help?
