Mystic Aquarium Outreach

Mystic Aquarium’s “Women in Science Day” event not only highlighted the Aquarium’s female researchers and animal trainers, but women of achievement from the local science community.  

Green Chemistry & Green Engineering scientists staffed a station with information and hands-on activities about their work.  Dr Mellor presented a demo on safer design chemicals, Megan O’Connor showed her work related to electronics recycling and Cammie Faucey talked about hand-held water filters which can be used in developing countries.

The event was visited by over 3500 people by 2PM.
