Discover the Ocean!


Come one, come all and dive into marine science!

At Ocean Discovery Day, UNH will open the doors of its marine research laboratories to highlight how scientists and students engage with our rich natural resources and utilize our proximity to the ocean for their studies. Join us at the Chase Ocean Engineering Laboratory on the UNH Durham campus and enjoy family-friendly, hands-on demonstrations, tours and talks. Drive mini-ROVs, dissect a squid, and watch animations of whale behavior underwater.

Demos and talks on the sounds of the polar ocean, torpedo rays, and other marine topics will be offered, while hands-on activities include marine life touch tanks, fish printing and knot tying. The Seafood Throwdown offers visitors a chance to taste local seafood prepared by guest chefs. Join us for this free day of ocean discovery!
