On Thursday, December 13, 2012, Price Middle School students traveled to the Georgia Aquarium as a culminating activity for the Dive Into Reading Contest sponsored by the Price Middle School Media Center.  Nineteen students participated in this activity.  Additional students were scheduled to attend but were unable due to their involvement in various school activities.

The students and chaperones had a behind the scene tour and viewed the 3-D movie before visiting the various exhibits.  The behind the scene tour, movie and admission was sponsored through the SEA (Sponsored Education Admissions) program at the Georgia Aquarium.  For some students and chaperones it was their first visit to the Georgia Aquarium and for others it was their first behind the scenes tour.  Due to the Winter Holidays, we were able to speak with Mrs. Scuba Claus and watch some Scuba Elves in the large tanks as they interacted with the animals.   Aquarium volunteers were impressed with the science knowledge of the Price students and their behavior.
