The students and faculty at SDSU, MEBSA, and CMIL are thrilled to invite you to our Marine Science Day (formerly the CMIL Open House) at the Coastal and Marine Institute Laboratory (CMIL), on March 19th, 2017 from 10 am to 3 pm. The 2017 Marine Science Day will showcase current research at SDSU, the facilities at CMIL, and many educational activities related to marine ecology, conservation, and importantly the impacts of changing coastlines on San Diego’s marine ecosystems. This is a once a year opportunity where CMIL has opened its doors and is a great chance to experience what goes on at a working marine research laboratory.
The CMIL Marine Science Day is free and geared toward students, teachers, and families. This is especially true for SDSU students who might be interested in joining SDSU marine biology labs to gain valuable laboratory experience. Educational activities will demonstrate key topics of ongoing research and related issues in marine science. In addition guests will have the opportunity to interact with the faculty and graduate student marine researchers who call CMIL ‘home’.
Get to know SDSU scientists by attending presentations from graduate students and faculty members held every hour.
