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. Check out the hand-powered wave tank, watch animations of whale behavior underwater and drive mini-ROVs in the deep tank. Demos and talks on topics such as ocean renewable energy, aquaculture, seafloor mapping and underwater exploration are offered, while hands-on activities include marine life touch tanks, lobster banding and fish printing. Join us for this free day of ocean discovery!
