Be part of history.
On June 7th - Fabien Cousteau, the first grandson of Jacques Cousteau, and expedition leader of Mission 31 will Skype in to OutdoorFest from the aquatic space station, the Aquarius.
We'll hear an update on the mission, get a tour of the Aquarius and have a chance to ask Cousteau questions in real time.
Mission 31 is an ambitious 31-day living experiment that will push forward the frontier of ocean exploration and change the dynamics of environmental education forever.
There's no more fitting of a location to have this incredible event then The Explorers Club. As Mission 31 is a flag carrying mission for the club - we know that this is history in the making.
This event is for families only: no unaccompanied adults!
Mission 31 is a 31-day expedition lead by Fabien Cousteau. Their team will live in the underwater laboratory Aquarius and perform marine research while simultaneously connecting (virtually) with students all over the globe.
