Student Day (Grades 3 - 12)

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. Students will get their hands wet while exploring our ecosytems and touching live sea creatures.
