IMET's third annual Open House was held on May 4, 2019 and was a great success! We had more than 550 attendees, who participated in science-based activities led by our faculty, students, and staff. Visitors had the chance to climb aboard the Rachel Carson, a research vessel used by the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science, and see dinoflagellates, tiny marine organisms, glow in the dark. Kids looked under the microscope for a closer view of life in the Baltimore Harbor and saw a variety of fish, from rockfish to sharks, growing in our Aquaculture Research Center. We hope to see you next year, on May 2, 2020!
