A 3LS presentation consists of lively storytelling while teaching the science of prey and predator. The story is presented on Powerpoint and normally runs 25 to 40 minutes, depending on audience age. Story selection may be adjusted to any age level.

The presentation is concluded with a song and dance with the Shrimpettes.
