Save the Date...March 27, 2015


6th Annual Science Diving Symposium
Friday, March 27, 2015
Hosted by the North Carolina Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores

The Scientific Diver Symposium is held annually in Carteret County, NC and is open to all Scientific Divers, Scientists, and Educators who are located in or around Carteret County and contribute to expanding knowledge of marine and estuarine environments.  To be clear, your work does not have to be in North Carolina!!! Symposium goals are:

1. Allow scientific divers to meet and exchange information with other divers on methods, techniques, and research that requires the use of SCUBA as a tool,
2. Share knowledge of safer and more efficient diving and research methods, and
3. Educate non-diving scientists and educators about ways SCUBA and divers might enhance their success

The morning session will be open to divers only; the afternoon session will be open to all scientists, educators, and those who are interested.  There will be a photo contest with two categories: 1) science diving action shots and 2) underwater organisms. The winner of each category gets a dive at the aquarium!!
