High school students investigate marine science careers at the HMSC

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.
