Local Ocean Literacy Educational Program Hosts Tasting and Expert Panel Discussion

NEWPORT BEACH, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/27/14 -- ExplorOcean, a non-profit ocean literacy center, has organized a fun afternoon event to raise support and awareness of its educational programs for school-age children. Simply Sensational Sustainable Seafood will be held Sunday, June 8, to coincide with the nationally celebrated World Oceans Day, and will feature a seafood tasting, live entertainment, ocean-themed activities for children, and an interactive panel discussion.

The mission of ExplorOcean is to inspire, educate and engage the explorer within through interactive ocean literacy-based experiences grounded in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) -- programs and curriculum. Simply Sensational Sustainable Seafood will be open to all ages, and will celebrate the diversity of the ocean's life and ecosystems with a focus on sustainability.

"At the Simply Sensational Sustainable Seafood event, we will teach students and their parents what seafood sustainability really means," says Wendy Marshall, Ed.D., director of education and public programs for ExplorOcean. "We hope by the end of the event, everyone there will understand the difference between wild-caught vs. farm-raised seafood and which options are available for their family tables."

In addition to the interactive panel, the Simply Sensational Sustainable Seafood event will include children's ocean-themed activities and eco-friendly home goods available for purchase. Tickets to attend the event are $25 for members, and $35 for non-members. Attendees will be treated to appetizers, drinks and desserts as well as take part in a seafood tasting.

However, the rapid adoption of APIs and almost ubiquitous availability of APIs amongst most SaaS and Cloud applications are ra...
