An Aquarium for Kids (and the Kid in You)


Produced by Radio Curious

Have you ever wanted to look at penguins while they look at you, or crawl past giant clams, or see eye to eye with tropical sharks? Well, you can do that at Monterey Bay Aquarium, in Monterey, California. Splash Zone was an exhibit featured in the summer of 2000. It was designed for families with children from infants to age 9, but was also very fun for adults.  The exhibit is still open today.

Barry Vogel visited Splash Zone early in that summer and spoke with Andy Case, the special projects coordinator at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. He was on the team that created Splash Zone.
