Join us for IMET's Virtual Open House

On May 2, we had planned to welcome the public into our building for science-based activities, but instead we're encouraging you to make science happen at home! From May 2 - May 16, complete activities for the chance to win prizes. We have extended the Open House through the end of May!! Send completed activity pages or a list of activities you did to Each activity you complete will get you one raffle ticket for prizes like an IMET t-shirt, a to-go utensil set, or tickets to the National Aquarium, the Maryland Science Center, or Port Discovery. If you win the grand prize, you'll receive the t-shirt, utensils, tickets to the site of your choice, and a private tour of our Aquaculture Research Center, where we grow fish like seabass and salmon!

If you have questions or comments, please contact us by emailing
