Ocean Sciences Centre Public Education Program

Since 1988, the Ocean Sciences Centre has organized and played a continuous role in public awareness in marine sciences through public and marine science programs.

The current Public Education Program is a complimentary interactive and interpretive outdoors activity for tourists, school children and local visitors. Features of the program include an outdoor touch tank where visitors can experience a never-ending variety of local marine life; an outdoor observation platform for viewing our captive population of harp seals, and marine interpreters (Memorial University summer students) to answer questions and explain current research initiatives at the facility. The program operates seven days a week from June 1st to Labour Day weekend.
