150 Years and Counting: Studying Fish, Fisheries and More at the Woods Hole Laboratory and Science Aquarium
Join us for a virtual visit to Woods Hole, Massachusetts and the NOAA Fisheries Woods Hole Laboratory and Science Aquarium, which is celebrating its 150th anniversary in 2021.
The village of Woods Hole, Massachusetts is home to an amazing collection of marine science institutions. In this webinar, we will introduce you to the NOAA Fisheries Woods Hole Lab and its Woods Hole Science Aquarium. The Woods Hole Lab is the oldest of the six scientific organizations now located in the village, and is the founding lab of what today is NOAA Fisheries. We will "walk" down main street, "visit" a NOAA research vessel during a bottom trawl survey, examine otoliths (fish ear stones) in our age & growth lab, and go behind the scenes at the Woods Hole Science Aquarium, the oldest public aquarium in the United States.
This NOAA Live! Webinar is part of the NOAA Open House Series in March, during which we will "travel" (virtually) across the country to showcase some of the amazing places our NOAA scientists, engineers, educators, technicians, and interns work. The webinar will last about 45 minutes with moderated questions and answers throughout and live American Sign Language interpretation. This webinar will be recorded and posted afterward with English captions and Spanish subtitles. (Grades 2-8 but all ages will enjoy)
