ECOGIG outreach staff took "Science at the Stadium" on the road to Penn State's Fan Fest on September 3rd, prior to Penn State's first home game of the 2016 football season. Visitors to the Ocean Discovery Zone explored the deepwater ecosystems of the Gulf of Mexico and learned about the importance of healthy oceans. They met several Penn State marine scientists (including ECOGIG priciple investigators Dr. Charles Fisher and Dr. Iliana Baums) and discovered the tools they use to conduct deep sea research in the Gulf.

Additional photos from this event are available to view on Facebook. You can also view a fun timelapse video of the event on Vimeo or in our outreach video album right here on our site!

"Science at the Stadium" is an extension of the Ocean Discovery Zone- you may read more about our signature outreach event here.
