Liberty Middle School invites the community to an ocean adventure.

The school is holding its sixth annual Family Science Night on Monday, focusing on fun science learning activities.

The ocean-themed event features dinner in the "Captain’s Café" from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., as well as a book and bake sale.

For the event, students have created 25 student-led sessions, including tube worms of the deep ocean, a steamboat adventure and a portable planetarium.

There also will be coral reefs, sea shell classification, underwater volcanoes and ocean robotics. 

Most events are free. Others, including squid dissection and the planetarium, cost $2 to $3.

Other fun projects include learning how to classify marine animals while decorating sea cookies and learning about endangered ocean animals with Rice Krispies treat-shaped starfish.

Participants can also learn how to tie nautical knots and create Play-Doh houses that can sustain huge waves.

“Liberty’s Family Science Night is unusual in that students from advanced classes plan, prepare and teach all sessions,” said Donna Governor, advanced science teacher.

“Students have been working hard for months to make sure this year’s event is both fun and educational.”

The event will run from 5:30 to 9 p.m. and events will be held throughout the school.

Dinner is available and costs $6.50.
