We’ll have a PowerPoint presentation running with pictures and details about our work, a quality speaker so you can really experience some of our under ocean sounds, a hydrophone (under water microphone) to inspect, a 3-D Printer job going to check out (so cool!), a chance to see your voice on a spectrogram, and scientists there waiting for your questions. Along with all of the other groups of scientists from the Hatfield Marine Science Center campus, food available for purchase, and exhibits highlighting HMSC’s 50 years of research, this Saturday promises to be a great time. Here are some more details:
