Go behind the scenes at NOAA during open house
Meet oceanographers, marine biologists, meteorologists, and engineers who work on our planet’s most pressing environmental issues and go behind the scenes in their laboratories during a June 9 open house at NOAA’s Sandpoint complex in Seattle.
The open house will run from noon to 6:30 p.m. at NOAA’s Western Regional Center in north Seattle, on the shores of Lake Washington. It is free and open to the public. Adults must bring valid photo identification.
NOAA staff and scientists will provide guided tours of the Alaska Fisheries Science Center Marine Mammal Bone Laboratory, the Alaska Fisheries Science Center Net Loft, the Dive Center that prepares and equips NOAA divers, the National Weather Service Forecast Office, and the Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory’s engineering shop where they build new technology to collect new data from our oceans.
Attendees will learn about NOAA’s efforts to protect the ocean and its inhabitants, predict changes in the atmosphere, provide information about climate change, and benefit the public through science, service, and stewardship.
