Come along to the annual Open Day for a behind the scenes look at marine research at the Victoria University Coastal Ecology Lab (VUCEL). You’ll be able to see their research in action and ask the researchers anything you want to know about their marine research. It’s the only day the lab is open to the public.

There will be:

  • interactive displays showcasing the diversity of marine biology research
  • experience the touch tanks of marine creatures
  • see examples of research equipment in action
  • talk to knowledgeable researchers

It will be a fun and educational day for all ages!
