For one day of the year we open the doors of our Southampton office to the public, giving a unique view of the ground breaking science and engineering undertaken across the NOC.
The day is a mix of hands on science, exhibits and talks, with content aimed at all age groups. This is a unique opportunity to get close to our fleet of robotic vehicles and to talk to our scientists and engineers about the work that they do.
Due to COVID- 19 The 2020 Open Day was held as a virtual event. The 2021 Southampton Open Day is expected to take place on a Saturday close to World Oceans Day (8 June) as usual.
National Oceanography Centre – Liverpool
