ECOGIG took Science at the Stadium on the road to Florida State University on 11/14/15, where ECOGIG researchers Dr. Jeff Chanton and Dr. Ian MacDonald are located. The event coincided with Florida State's homecoming game against North Carolina State- football fans explored the Ocean Discovery Zone- an exhibit booth and hands-on activity station designed to give non-scientists of all ages access to information about the oil spill, the Gulf of Mexico and ocean ecosystems. Visitors to the Ocean Discovery Zone, set up on Langford Green in front of FSU's football stadium interacted with ECOGIG scientists to learn about their research expeditions and tools of discovery in deep ocean research. We had quite the crowd and appreciate everyone who stopped by! You can view more photos from the event here.
