Ever wonder what it’s like to be an ocean engineer or a researcher who explores the extreme environments of our oceans?
The next Family Day on July 13 will explore how Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs) are used to conduct underwater research and families will learn about how ROVs are used to get to those “hard to reach” areas.
Each family will be challenged to design, build, and test their own mini- ROV that will be used to complete a mission! Cost is $15 per person and registration ahead of time is strongly encouraged – learn more and register now!
Other July Family Day Programs will expose families to the scientific method by conducting a shore crab racing experiment and the geology of the Oregon coast to increase earthquake/tsunami preparedness. Participants of the Tsunami Quest program will be able to make their very own seismograph!
These programs are geared for all ages and there is still plenty of space – learn more.
A previous Family Day parent, said “taking part in these programs was a great entryway into the marine environment for my kids!”
Don’t miss out on these engaging opportunities and more at Hatfield Marine Science Center!
