This is called "Inventucation" (Invent + Education)
- Blue Whale = 110 feet
- Humpback Whale = 56 feet
- Killer Whale (Orca) = 30 feet
College students created these whales in class to invent what they were learning in Oceanography. They took these whales on as projects along with the curriculum to share with area schools. In a One Night showing over 4000 people viewed and explored the interior of the life-size blue whale!
We want to thank Dr. J. Michael Williamson, the creator of WhaleNet, Wheelock College, for his blueprint and design of the humpback whale.
