The UW Aquatic Sciences Open House is an annual event hosted by SEAS, ARGO outreach group, the School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences, and the School of Oceanography. The Open House offers a free and family-friendly afternoon of hands-on learning to celebrate science and research that relates to water. Visitors can experience the UW Fish Collection, the Research Vessel Rachel Carson, and real working science labs here at the university. We will also have hands-on activities led by current UW students, staff, postdocs, and faculty across the College of the Environment and by organizations from the greater Seattle area. Come get your hands wet and learn about the aquatic science happening right here in your backyard — covering everything from freshwater to oceans, microscopic microbes to whales, and everything in between!
