Science is everywhere. Science is for everyone.
We give people the tools and opportunities to engage with science as it affects their lives. We provide opportunities for fishermen, chefs, municipal leaders, and many other communities to explore the science that surrounds them.
Our experts lead experiences for public audiences that include:
- A network of citizen science projects throughout the Gulf of Maine watershed.
- Workshops and trainings for communities of fishermen, fisheries managers, and businesses throughout the seafood supply chain.
- Events in our lab designed to build community and explore relevant scientific concepts led by our staff and partners.
