BEAUFORT — Science is happening at the Duke University Marine Lab and students and faculty will welcome visitors to see what they’ve been up to 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. July 13 during the annual open house.
Rain or shine, the hands-on open house is designed for all ages and features stations across campus highlighting faculty and doctoral students research areas, ranging from plankton and algae to ocean acidification and whale and dolphin physiology and ecology, according to the university.
Visitors will be able to check out an invertebrate touch tank, tour the research vessel, the R/V RT Barber, discover hands-on science, technology, engineering and mathematics, or STEM, activities, drone demonstrations and more.
The lab, located at 135 Duke Marine Lab Road, has water filling stations in many buildings across campus, so bring a refillable bottle to stay hydrated. The Marine Lab is ADA accessible but does not own wheelchairs. For accessibility questions, contact the lab at 252-504-7503.
