ABOUT THE KEYNOTE 

Known as the “Smarty Party,” Oceans Alive! will feature Dr. Edith Widder, a deep-sea explorer who has won national acclaim for twice capturing video of the elusive giant squid using a stealth camera of her own design. Dr. Widder is the CEO and Senior Scientist at the Ocean Research & Conservation Association with a mission and passion to preserve and protect the ocean’s most precious real estate – its nurseries. As the Cox Science Center prepares for the opening of their expanded aquarium, Dr. Widder’s presentation will focus on inspiring the next generation of ocean stewards and ocean explorers.
