Overview

Have you ever wondered what happens in that unusual building with the tent-like roof at the Inner Harbor? Science happens! The Institute of Marine and Environmental Technology opens its doors to the public for a free Open House on Saturday, May 6, 1-4 p.m. to share the research that is happening at the harbor’s edge. Enjoy hands-on activities for kids of all ages, meet our scientists, and discover how the work being done in Baltimore is helping to change the world. For more information, calI (410) 234-8802. “The Institute of Marine and Environmental Technology is one of the world’s top environmental biotechnology research institutes,” said Director Russell Hill. “We want to let everyone know about the science that’s happening here, especially kids.” Scientists at the Institute of Marine and Environmental Technology (IMET) are engaged in cutting-edge research in microbiology, molecular biology, and biotechnology. They are using marine organisms like sponges to develop drugs for cancer and tuberculosis, devising ways to make alternative fuel out of algae and working on understanding how crabs and fish grow so that we have abundant sources of food.
