The Louisiana Sea Grant College Program is proud to host the 20th Annual Ocean Commotion at the LSU Pete Maravich Assembly Center on Tuesday, October 24, 2017. Each year Ocean Commotion brings approximately 2,500 area students, teachers and chaperones to LSU to learn about our coast and sea from about 70 exhibitors. The primary purpose of Ocean Commotion is to give students the chance to learn about and touch the products of the sea and coast — the aquatic animals, plants and minerals — upon which Louisiana’s citizens are so dependent.

Exhibits are provided by LSU researchers and public and private organizations. Exhibit viewing is divided into two time slots, each two hours in length, with the early time slot reserved for grades 5-8 students (8:45-10:45) and the other reserved for K-4 students (11:30-1:30)
