Dustin played the guitar, both Middle Eastern and African hand drums, small percussion instruments, and a few types of ethnic flutes. Dustin used audience participation, science demonstrations, music, and storytelling to create an engaging and fun educational experience for the children. The MOST also performs traveling science shows with a variety of topics throughout the year at schools, hospitals, camps, scout meetings, and libraries.

On a cold April night in 1912, the magnificent new luxury liner R.M.S. Titanic struck an iceberg as she was making her way towards New York on her maiden voyage from England.

The tragedy shocked the world and, through the years, the legend of this story has continued to grow. Seventy three years after the sinking, the wreck of the Titanic was discovered 2 ½ miles below the surface by an intrepid group of Oceanographers using state of the art technology. Join Eco-Photo Explorers as they recall the tragic history of the R.M.S. Titanic and the exciting search for her remains. The show will also feature discussions on the technology used to find the wreck and will examine the current controversy over the recovery of artifacts from this site.
