From John Lavrakis –
Come catch up on the latest in marine technology at Oregon State University. On Wednesday, May 20, the Marine Technology Society in cooperation with OSU’s Hatfield Marine Science Center is hosting two talks on innovations in marine science and marine studies at OSU. Dr. Clare Reimers of Oregon State University’s College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences will give a presentation on the state-of-the-art Regional Class Research Vessels being designed by an OSU-led team for the National Science Foundation. In her presentation, attendees will learn of innovative technologies these vessels will carry, enabling a broad spectrum of ocean science. Visualization aides will include animated fly-throughs of vessel spaces and model testing video. She will be followed by a presentation by Dr. Bob Cowen, HMSC Director, who will present an overview of OSU’s Marine Studies Initiative and OSU’s plans to bring hands-on education to undergraduate students on the Oregon Coast. The presentation will highlight some of the ways marine technology will be used in education at its coastal campus in Newport.
The event will be held at the Hatfield Marine Science Center’s Guin Library between 6 and 8:30 pm on Wednesday May 20. Cost to attend is $10 for the public and $5 for students, and includes a meal (Subway sandwich, snacks and beverage).
