Learning Together


Marine Science Day is the perfect opportunity for people of all ages to explore interactive exhibits to learn about the research that takes place at Hatfield Marine Science Center. You can find activities that are engaging for children throughout the campus on Marine Science Day!  

Kid Zone

Are you looking for an area specializing in activities geared toward Marine Science Day’s youngest visitors? Then check out the KID ZONE. Hosted by Oregon Sea Grant, the Kid Zone is in the Hatfield Education Wing and is a great place for children and their families to learn about ocean waves, big research ships, amazing marine animals, and more. Parents and educators are also invited to come to the Kid Zone to discover K-12 programs and resources available at Hatfield.

Kid’s Rest and Reading Room

You will also find a quiet space for kids in the Guin Library where children can have a little downtime and rest. Marine science children's books will be available.
