Marine Science Day was a huge hit. Attendance far exceeded any event I’ve personally witnessed at HMSC. Researchers and educators did a fantastic job of communicating what goes on at our strange and wonderful workplace.
A few highlights:
-Bill’s public sea turtle necropsy (with power tools!)
-A six-person life raft doubling as a bouncy castle in the Barry Fisher building
-Kids trying on a microphone-equipped full-face SCUBA mask at the Oregon Coast Aquarium‘s dive program kiosk
On a somewhat-unrelated note, if you missed last Monday’s xkcd graphic, you should probably check it out.
