Ocean Discovery Day - Public Open House

Touch a horseshoe crab, drive a remotely operated vehicle, and map the ocean floor at the University of New Hampshire’s Ocean Discovery Day! Ocean Discovery Day provides visitors with an opportunity to explore the wonders of the ocean through interactive exhibits and demonstrations. Visitors can make a fish print, band a lobster, taste a seaweed smoothie and see the plankton that form the base of the food chain in N.H.’s Great Bay. Watch a SCUBA diving demonstration to learn how UNH scientists conduct research below the waves, and learn more about marine snow and tern restoration at the Isles of Shoals.

This event is free and open to the general public!

The 2016 Ocean Discovery Day was a huge success!

Thanks to all who joined us.

We look forward to seeing you again Saturday, October 14, 2017!
