Ocean Discovery Day Activities

Saturday, September 29, 2018
10:00AM - 3:00PM

On Saturday, September 29, 2018 the general public is invited to discover ocean science and marine 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. Come 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 will have an opportunity to operate a Remotely Operator Vehicle (ROV), touch a sea star, try their hand at knot tying or paint with fish and so much more!

Join us for a day of ocean exploration in Durham, NH!

The event is free and open to the general public!
