Visit The REEF at FSU
ABOUT THIS EVENT
The REEF at FSU is one of the few places in Central North Carolina to experience a coral reef, and interact with reef organisms. Along with providing community education programs, we use the facility as a training ground for teachers, provide research opportunities to undergraduates, and introduce K-12 students to how a degree in STEM disciplines can lead to a stable career. We hope that young visitors to our facility will pursue degrees and strengthen the local community, becoming our future scientists, teachers, nurses and physicians.
We welcome visitors during the NC Science Festival. They will learn how a coral reef grows, identify some of the reef organisms, handle coral skeletons, and hear about how corals are being studied for their use in medicine.
