Marine Specimens featured in Birch Aquarium's Oddities Exhibit

Twenty one of Oriana’s Marine Specimens images are included in the Birch Aquarium’s newest exhibit, Oddities: Hidden Heroes of the Scripps Collections, and will be on display for the next year in an interactive format. An on-going exhibit, Oddities is created in partnership with the team from the Scripps Oceanographic Collections, where millions of specimens allow scientists to understand some of the amazing adaptations marine creatures have developed to survive. The Aquarium is open to the public daily from 9-5.

Scientific Art Show: Scripps Student Symposium

The goal of S3 is to provide a platform for Scripps graduate students to present and discuss their research with colleagues from all curricular groups, to foster interdisciplinary collaboration amongst the student population, and to introduce the new first-years to the wide variety of research Scripps has to offer. The presentations should be designed to be understandable not just to specific fields, but to the broader Scripps community.
