The “Sunsational Sandcastle” sandcastle building contest was designed to raise funds to support the aquarium’s marine science education programs.

The Oceanographic Teaching Stations, Inc. (OTS), the non-profit that manages and operates the Roundhouse Aquarium, hosted the contest in honor of World Oceans Day. Sponsored by Chevron Corporation, the Port of Long Beach, Bayview Pediatric Dental Group and the Langlois family, the contest invited people from across the United States and around the world to create their sandcastles wherever they were with any type of sand or soil they had access to.

According to Grace Adams, OTS director, OTS served more than 25,000 K-college students from southern California and even students in New York, Nevada, and India during the extraordinary circumstances of 2020.

"There is a continued need for our programs, whether they are in-person or virtual," said Adams when the contest was announced. "“We hope to be able to continue and expand our education programs on ocean science during 2021 and beyond."
