Gulf of Maine Learning Lab

The Learning Lab is located at DMR’s Boothbay Harbor marine science research facility, adjacent to the Maine State Aquarium. The space is where audiences can take a deeper dive into what makes the Gulf of Maine ecosystem so unique. In this hands-on, interactive lab setting, visitors can investigate the real-time research DMR’s scientists are conducting in their own laboratories onsite. The Learning Lab is intended to be a window into DMR’s research lab, an engaging space where ocean discovery begins for audiences of all ages. It is also an introduction for the community to participate directly in DMR research alongside our researchers.

The Learning Lab will be open for special programs on a limited capacity this summer (2022). Reservations will be required. Stay tuned for details.
