LONG BEACH, Calif. (KABC) -- Shark Week is every week at Cal State Long Beach.
The College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics hosted "Sharks @ The Beach." The public was treated to a free tour of the shark lab.
Those in attendance got to see sharks, rays and gamefish up close and personal. The event included a chance to participate in a physics experiment.
They also had a chance to see the university's museum-level collection of mammal, bird and reptile skeletons.
Those wanting a little fun with the sun could take a look at the department's special solar telescopes and those wanting to get their hands dirty experienced a simulated ocean oil spill and clean-up.
The event was sponsored by the Discovery Channel.
