Welcome to National Geographic Live Student Matinees in Seattle! National Geographic explorers, photographers, filmmakers and scientists embody the importance of living curious, responsible and empowered lives. We’re proud to present these inspiring role models through student matinees at Benaroya Hall in Seattle.
Programs are approximately one hour long, including a short Q&A session after the presentation. Themes and appropriate grade levels are noted for each show. Please be sure and check if the presentation is age-appropriate for your students.
Thomas Peschak believes sharks aren’t a reason to get out of the water; they’re a reason to get in! He’s found himself paddling kayaks alongside great white sharks in South Africa, swimming among hundreds of manta rays in the Maldives, and keeping pace with massive whale sharks in the Arabian Sea. A marine biologist turned National Geographic photographer, Peschak will take students around the world with his award-winning images and his engaging take on the ocean’s charismatic creatures.
