ECOGIG has 29 researchers at 15 institutions, spread around the United States. Many of our researchers love the idea of the Ocean Discovery Zone (ODZ) and have requested its presence at festivals hosted by their instutitions. The ECOGIG outreach office created a traveling version of the ODZ and sent it off to 4 different festivals this fall. It was a hit with visitors young & old, and we hope to be able to make this a yearly tradition with our researchers!
