Students can shadow a marine biologist for a day

July 5, 2013 by  

The Aquarium of the Pacific has the perfect program for those who are interested in becoming a marine biologist.

The aquarium’s new job shadow scheme is a three-hour program that lets students follow around a marine biologist to learn all the ins and outs of their job.

Students will get to help feed the fish, meet staff members, go behind the scenes, work on the ray pool, observe the Giant Pacific Octopus as it eats, and watch a staff member cut a window into a shark’s egg.

The program will be held from 9:00 am to noon this Saturday, July 6, at the aquarium located 30 minutes from Brea at 100 Aquarium Way in Long Beach. The program is for students ages 12 – 18.

Also this weekend in Brea, it is time once again for the 5th Annual Woodstock Tribute Weekend at the Orange County Market Place in Costa Mesa.

This two-day festival will take place on Saturday and Sunday, July 6 and 7. Bands will imitate performers from the original 1969 concert including Aquarius recreating John Fogerty, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Jopline, Sly Stone and Arlo Guthrie on Saturday. On Sunday, tribute band The Who Revue will be recreating the look and feel of Roger Daltry, Keith Moon, Pete Townshend, and John Entwistle.

The festival will be held from 10:00 am – 4:00 pm each day with concerts at noon and 2:00 pm Admission is free. Organizers will no doubt be aware that banner printing is an effective way to proclaim such events for the public.
