Monthly events focus on current ocean and earth topics with hands-on exploration, special activities, and the opportunity to interact with Scripps Oceanography scientists.
SEA Days also provides an ideal venue for students, scouts, and others to meet requirements for “Interview a Scientist” or career-day projects.
