All are welcome to Ocean Discovery Day where you'll discover Marine Science and Ocean Engineering at UNH. From ocean acoustics to plankton, there's something for everyone! Designed to engage explorers of all ages, Ocean Discovery Day offers a variety of hands-on activities and presentations. This program will be held inside our state-of-the-art Ocean Engineering Lab. Get a glimpse at the latest technology used to map the ocean floor, see how scientists use data sondes to monitor the water quality in the Great Bay Estuary and how acoustic technology is used to study marine life. Participants can operate a Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV), touch a sea star, try your hand at knot tying, marine-related arts and crafts, and so much more. This family-friendly event is FREE!
