Open House

The Chesapeake Biological Laboratory (CBL), the oldest state-supported marine lab on the East Coast, invites you to attend an Open House on September 10th between 1:00pm – 5:00pm. 

This celebration of science on scenic Solomons Island will feature family-friendly activities, opportunities to engage with our team of faculty and student scientists, and a “behind the scenes” view of current research efforts. 

The event will give children of all ages the opportunity to drive an underwater robot (top right), meet a terrapin, get hands-on with a watershed model (bottom right), discover the fish of the Patuxent River, take a dockside tour of the research vessel Rachel Carson, and much more. The first 200 children to correctly answer “Passport” questions as they navigate their way through nine open CBL buildings will win a prize.  We hope to see you on September 10th!
