Ocean Discovery Day was an amazing success! We hosted 1,300 school children and educators at Chase Ocean Engineering Lab on Friday then, on Saturday, we opened our doors to the public. In spite of the rain, more than 500 intrepid souls checked out the marine scene in Chase and at the Coastal Marine Lab in New Castle, NH.
