The Virginia Institute of Marine Science has announced its Discovery Labs and After Hours lecture events for the month.
The next Discovery Labs will be held from 6-8 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 22, at the VIMS Catlett-Burrus Research & Education Lab. The lab topic will be on coastal acidification. Explore how waters are becoming more acidic and how that impacts ecosystems and everything that lives in them through a series of hands-on activities and experiments. VIMS grad student, Anthony Himes, will talk about his research on this topic in the Chesapeake Bay.
Discovery Labs are free, family-friendly programs provided by the Chesapeake Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve (CBNERR) at VIMS.
Designed with elementary-aged youth and their parents in mind, each lab focuses on a different topic related to the Chesapeake Bay and the local environment and includes exhibits, demonstrations and hands-on activities, as well as a presentation by an expert on the topic.
