Coastal and Marine Institute Open House

Coastal and Marine Institute Open House

Most people would agree that marine ecosystems are one of the most mysterious environments on the planet.  If you would like to learn more about how this mystery operates and what SDSU is doing in relation to the marine and coastal life in San Diego.  The Marine Ecology and Biology Student Association (MEBSA) and the Biology Department at SDSU are hosting a free open house at the Coastal and Marine Institute Laboratory (CMIL) on May 20th 2012 from 10am to 4pm. The purpose of the open house event is to showcase current research at SDS, the facilities at CMIL, and to educate the public about marine ecology and conservation.  This is the first time CMIL has opened its doors to the public and is a rare opportunity that you will not want to miss out on.   The event is geared towards students, alumni, teachers, families and the general public. Interactive and educational activities at the event will demonstrate their research and educate on related topics to marine science. These activities will be held throughout the day and will accompany other general activities such as touch tanks, games, SCUBA gear demonstrations, lab tours, a marine ecology puppet show, and research talks. At the end of the event, a fundraising raffle will be held with prizes such as gift certificates, snorkel gear, and museum tickets.
