OIMB: Research and Learning at the Ocean's Edge
An exhibit in Knight Library, April-July 2016
- Students get their hands dirty and their feet wet. The faculty guides hands-on exploration of scientific frontiers from molecules to organisms to entire ecosystems. Classes meet all day long, interspersing lectures with laboratory projects, field work, and boat trips.
- Most of the resident faculty members conduct research on the early life-history stages (eggs, embryos, larvae, and juveniles) of marine animals.
- Graduate students affiliated with OIMB laboratories work locally, up and down the Pacific Coast, and in deep-water habitats throughout the world.
Presented in conjunction with the grand opening of the Charleston Marine Life Center - a new public museum on the OIMB campus - this exhibition in Knight Library highlights the history and culture of OIMB, as well as the learning, exploration, and knowledge creation that happen "at the ocean's edge."
