Dive into marine science! At Ocean Discovery Day, UNH will open the doors of its marine research laboratories to highlight how scientists and students engage with our rich natural resources and utilize our proximity to the ocean for their studies. Join us at the Chase Ocean Engineering Laboratory on the UNH Durham campus and enjoy family-friendly, hands-on demonstrations, tours and talks. Drive mini-ROVs, dissect a squid, and watch animations of whale behavior underwater. Demos and talks on a wide array of ocean topics from mapping to acoustics will be offered, while hands-on activities include marine life touch tanks, fish printing and knot tying.  Join us for this free day of ocean discovery!

Although the general public is welcomed, this day is specifically designed for educators and organizations to bring students to talk to scientists, operate an ROV in the deep water tank, learn about ocean mapping, ocean acoustics and check out the 3D visualization lab.
