The Chesapeake Biological Laboratory (CBL), a national leader in fisheries, estuarine ecology, environmental chemistry and toxicology. invites the public to the Solomons Island campus for an Open House.
Last year’s Open House was attended by more than 500 and included exhibits and hands-on activities like piloting an underwater robot, experiments about toxicology, tours of the research vessel, the Rachel Carson, and a Scientist Selfie Station. Children attending the Open House receive a passport and move through the different labs and experiments to have the passport stamped for prizes.
CBL is part of the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science and is the oldest publicly supported marine laboratory on the East Coast.
