Institute of Marine and Environmental Technology (IMET) scientists share their research with the public on Saturday, May 7, 1-4 p.m. Enjoy hands-on science activities for all ages and discover important marine research happening at the harbor’s edge. The majority of the event will take place outside. Masks are encouraged.

Scientists at the Institute of Marine and Environmental Technology (IMET) are engaged in groundbreaking research in microbiology, genetics, and biotechnology. They are researching how micro-algae may be used to remove pollutants from smoke stack emissions, how shark immune systems could help us diagnose and treat diseases, and how to grow fish in urban environments as a sustainable solution to food insecurity.

Located in Baltimore's Inner Harbor, the Institute of Marine and Environmental Technology (IMET) is a joint University System of Maryland institute that conducts research to help protect and restore coastal marine systems and their watersheds and improve human health. The University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science (UMCES), the University of Maryland Baltimore, and the University of Maryland Baltimore County are partner universities.
