This year at Exploring Ocean STEM Careers Night, we learned about the diverse range of careers offered in Oceanography. With a record turnout of nearly 250 attendees, guests met scientists and professionals from Scripps Institution of Oceanography and Birch Aquarium at Scripps, gained connections, and learned about the many research topics and careers in Oceanography. Check out these snapshots from Exploring Ocean STEM Careers Night, and we will see you next year!
Throughout the aquarium, Scripps scientists discuss their research with guests.
Using these autonomous underwater gliders, or Spray gilders, scientists can analyze ocean currents. This Scripps expert uses them to study the California Current System.
At panel discussions, scientists and experts talk about how their interest in ocean science led them down various career paths.
Students and parents learn about the importance of plankton and what they tell us about their predators.
