Looking for something to do today? Here are The Salem News' Best Bets:

Teens can learn how to turn everyday objects into musical instruments in a Drawdio electronics class from 4 to 5 p.m. in the Creativity Lab at Peabody Institute Library, 82 Main St., Peabody. Instruction will be provided for free, however there is a $10 suggested donation to help offset the cost of supplies. This program is designed for ages 11 to 18. Sign up at the Creativity Lab calendar at the library's website.

Parents, especially those of children in grades four through 12, are invited to a "Get Safe Online" forum at Beverly High School's auditorium, 100 Sohier Road, Beverly. The free event, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. and sponsored by Citywide PTO, features Joani Geltman in a conversation about how to get involved in keeping your child safe in the technological age. Learn about the vulnerabilities of the adolescent brain and how it puts a child at risk; legal issues surrounding misuse of media; and controls that can be put in place.

The third program in the 2014 "Underwater in Salem Sound" lecture series features Dr. Mike Armstrong of the state Division of Marine Fisheries tonight from 7 to 8:30 at Abbot Public Library, 235 Pleasant St., Marblehead. Armstrong will present a free illustrated talk titled "Changing Climate, Changing Fishes.” This lecture series is presented by Salem Sound Coastwatch and Abbot Public Library. For more information, visit either organization's website or call 978-741-7900.
