SOEST Open House

The 2023 SOEST Open House will be held on Saturday, October 21 from 10 am – 2 pm!

This one-day event will showcase research, education, and service programs conducted by SOEST faculty, students, and staff. We’ll have a diverse array of entertaining and educational hands-on activities, demonstrations, poster and video displays, lab tours, and just-for-fun activities.

Students, families, and community members of all ages are welcome to come and learn about volcanoes, tsunamis, El Niño, planetary exploration, hurricanes, coastal erosion, marine ecosystems, and so much more. You will visit state-of-the-art laboratories and hear about cutting-edge research from the scientists who are making the new discoveries!
