SEA Days

Experience Science, Exploration & Adventure!

SEA Days features multi-generational learning about cutting-edge research at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC San Diego. Monthly events focus on current ocean topics with hands-on exploration, special activities and a chance to interact with Scripps Oceanography scientists.

SEA Days also provides an ideal venue for students, scouts and others to meet requirements for “Interview a Scientist” or career-day projects.

Programs are included with aquarium admission and take place from 11 a.m.–3 p.m. on the third Saturday of each month. Join us for these dynamic opportunities to explore the ocean.
