Our Watery World: UW Aquatic Science Open House

Date & Time
Saturday, May 4, 2019
Priority Area:

Come join us for a family-friendly afternoon of hands-on learning at Our Watery World, the second annual aquatic science open house at the UW to celebrate science and research that relates to water.

We will have tours of the UW Fish Collection, the Research Vessel Rachel Carson, and real working science labs at the UW School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences and School of Oceanography. We will also have hands-on activities led by current UW students, staff, postdocs and faculty across the College of the Environment and by organizations from the greater Seattle area, which will give you an opportunity to get your hands wet and learn about the aquatic science happening right here in Seattle — covering everything from freshwater to oceans, microscopic microbes to whales, and everything in between!

Location:  UW FSH Building (1122 NE Boat Street, Seattle) and OSB Building (1492 NE Boat Street, Seattle)

Cost: FREE!

This event is co-hosted by UW outreach groups SEAS (Students Explore Aquatic Sciences) and ARGO (Academic and Recreational Graduate Oceanographers), and funded by the UW School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences and School of Oceanography.
