Registration is now being accepted for the April 17 Career Days at OSU’s Hatfield Marine Science Center in Newport.
Open to all high school students, this year’s event – “CSI – Careers in Science Investigation” – will focus on some of the mysteries scientists attempt to unravel: What’s causing marine “dead zones”? What do whales do when no one is looking? How does a scientist determine why a marine animal died?
Students will have the opportunity to meet working scientists and learn what their jobs are really like, to explore the high-tech equipment and techniques researchers use to investigate the ocean, and to tour labs and research facilities at the HMSC.
Registration is $15 per student, and preregistration is required by April 3. For more information visit Oregon Sea Grant’s marine education program on the HMSC Web site.
