Discovery Day is Back!

Discovery Day

Discovery Day is back in 2023!

The open house event gives you the chance to learn about current research and and learn more about the coastal ecosystem we live in.

The day includes a chance to explore real scientific laboratories, hands-on science lessons, and free children’s admission to the Alabama Aquarium.

The Graduate Student Organization will also offer some tips in casting.
