This spectacular squid turned two years old on February 17, 2017! Squirt has taught us a lot of new things over the last two years and we hope to continue to learn from him and celebrate his birthday!




Stanton Broadway is an animator, illustrator, and comic artist based out of Central Florida. A graduate of the Savannah College of Art and Design, Stanton is an art teacher by day and moonlights as a freelancer. He has been working on the DEEPEND project since 2014, becoming the artist that brings Squirt the glass squid to life. You can see more of his work at www.stanimated.com.

DEEPEND Cruises

(check the boxes to select the cruises to show - click dots to see updates)

We had a great turn out of 23 teachers at TAMU Galveston for the third Gulf of Mexico Exploration teacher workshop! Teachers learned about DEEPEND science and brought lesson plans and other resources back to their schools to share with colleagues and their students.

Thank you, Texas for a great event!
