Ocean Exploration

Just about every corner of our terrestrial earth has been documented, but not so for our oceans. Discover how ocean research is being conducted today. We will explore how technology including ROVs (remotely operated underwater vehicles) is expanding research capabilities. Join us to discuss what direction ocean exploration can and should have.

Join us as we converse with our panel of experts featuring:

  • Michael Koski Director of Science and Engineering 6-12 Windham School District. 2016 E/V Nautilus Expedition team member

  • Hal Weeks recently retired as assistant director of UNH's Shoals Marine Laboratory

Science on Tap events are free to the general public. Participants are welcome to order from the food and beverage menus at Stark Brewing. Drop-ins are welcome but attendees are encouraged to register in advance using Eventbrite.



If you have ideas or suggestions for next season please send us an Email.

Science on Tap is a program of the SEE Science Center
