Visitors were able to visit the aquarium, operate under water vehicles, look at fossils close up and chat to enthusiastic staff. There were a great variety of hands on activites and our very own R.V. Callista was the star attraction, offering members of the public the chance to look around a working research vessel. The crew from Callista were onboard to answer any questions as well as some student volunteers.
