New Hampshire Sea Grant Research Symposium

This biannual symposium is designed to showcase the results of recently funded N.H. Sea Grant projects and provide a forum to discuss best practices in translating cross-disciplinary science to action through integrated research, education and engagement – a hallmark of Sea Grant. Symposium participants will also learn how successful NHSG research projects strive to address the core tenets of Sea Grant work to be responsive, relevant, integrated and engaged.


Ocean Discovery Day

Touch a horseshoe crab, drive a remotely operated vehicle, and map the ocean floor at the University of New Hampshire’s Ocean Discovery Day! Held each fall, 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.

School of Marine Science and Ocean Engineering Graduate Research Symposium

This symposium is designed to showcase graduate student research, to build awareness of UNH marine research activities, and enhance interdisciplinary connections within the School of Marine Science and Ocean Engineering community. This event is held each April in conjunction with UNH's Graduate and Undergraduate Research Conferences. Visit the UNH calendar for a list of events, seminars and programs.
