Hatfield Marine Science Day, April 13, 2024

Stay tuned for details on our annual science fair and open house featuring marine science programs and scientists based at Hatfield. The event is free, family-friendly and ideal for lifelong learners. Everyone is welcome!

Thank You - Visitors, Exhibitors and Volunteers!

Heartfelt thanks to everyone for an outstanding Marine Science Day. We had 1,655 visitors attend! 

It takes a community to put on Marine Science Day, and Hatfield's community is fantastic!

In total, we had 41 exhibits and 124 exhibitors from labs and research programs based on the Hatfield campus. Every lab committed time and energy to build engaging and interactive displays to communicate their work. 

We also had 53 volunteers who put on a smile and orange vest to guide our guests, so no one missed a single exhibit.

Finally, businesses from Newport also played a role in our event's success, including UltraLife Cafe, Mo's, the Port of Newport, the City of Newport, and the Newport Chamber of Commerce.

To everyone, sincere thanks.
