Many of the activi- ties will be repeated at least once throughout the day, so youngsters can be sure to hit all the attrac- tions. From noon to 4 p.m., students can join whaling artist Wyland as he kicks off the national Ocean Challenge in Delaware. As part of the challenge, designed to inspire learning about the sea and its crea- tures, Wyland will encourage stu- dents from kindergarten through college to help paint an ocean mural on a 24-foot long plywood "canvas." Kids should come prepared to paint and let their imagination car- ry them intothe deep. Teachers and volunteers will be on hand to help mix paint, cover youngsters with T-shirt artists' smocks, and provide instruction where needed. The finished mural will be pho- tographed and entered into Wyland's Ocean Challenge, with winners to be announced in No- vember.
