Water quality groups and citizen scientists team up to create a regional snapshot of coastal conditions. On August 22, MIT Sea Grant teamed up to take water samples with groups like the New England Aquarium’s Live Blue Ambassadors.
MIT Sea Grant engineers, scientists and student interns host activities at the Science Carnival and Robot Zoo, including a Sea Perch remotely operated vehicle tank, live touch tanks, and a robotic fish pool.
The MIT Sea Grant College Program is a Federal-Institute partnership that brings the research and engineering core of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology to bear on ocean-related challenges. Funded by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the National Sea Grant College Program promotes the conservation and sustainable development of marine resources through research, education, and outreach.
