Dive into the ocean with our scientists and discover how marine researchers see the sea at #SU2017.
Spend an evening exploring biodiversity and marine science for a deeper look at how we study the ocean.
Part of #EuropeanResearchersNight, our annual festival of science is free and offers you the chance to chat to our scientists and uncover cutting-edge research.
See hundreds of behind-the-scenes specimens and take part in talks, tours and special events linked to marine science.
Everything is free to attend, but spaces will be limited for some activities. We will be announcing details of special activities in the coming weeks. Tickets for special activities will be available on the night on a first-come, first-served basis.
— handle specimens from our behind-the-scenes collections
— take part in immersive, interactive activities to discover how the ocean supports all life on Earth
— meet marine scientists and learn about their cutting-edge work on oceans and the impact of climate change
— go on a tour of the tank room, which contains thousands of marine animals preserved in spirit — including Archie the giant squid
— see inside the world-leading Conservation Centre, not normally open to the public
— watch the best from Famelab, the world's biggest science communication competition, as speakers deliver three-minute talks that rely on knowledge, enthusiasm and charisma
— hear a selection of short stories told by our scientists, including personal stories from the field
You can also join the festivities at the Natural History Museum at Tring, the Great North Museum in Newcastle, Manchester Museum, and The Ulster Museum.
