The Woodman Museum in Dover, N.H., hosted a day-long "Discover the Ocean" event last week run by the UNH Marine Docents. With plenty of interactive exhibits like squid dissection and marine life touch tanks, the kids who attended the event spent hours engaged in learning about marine science topics.
