Deep Ocean Lab

With Greg Foot

This is an event from the 2018 edition

What happens as you dive further and further into the dark ocean?

Join YouTuber and Blue Peter science guy Greg Foot for the story of his scientific adventure to the deep. With experiments and stunning videos, Greg will show you the high-tech submersibles that took him down a crazy 1000ft. He’ll explain the importance of our oceans, and – thanks to Greg’s work with the Blue Planet II team – uncover the effect we’re having on them. Plus, meet a creature from the deep!
