This event is co-presented by physics & education faculty together with licensed dive instructors. After a morning of classroom activities and instruction, after lunch, your day will culminate with the opportunity for you to get in the water using scuba gear in an afternoon (heated) pool session with dive instructors who will guide your pool experience.
