About

Are you a visual learner who loves STEM and the ocean? Join us by participating in an environmental science exhibit that features an Augmented Reality (AR) Sandtable. Kids and adults can participate by molding the sand to see what happens in the watershed when it rains, floods or when landforms change! This AR technology uses sensors, projection, and participants’ hands to depict water cycles and changes in sea level. This 3D, interactive experience is perfect for learning about how water moves across the land, what a watershed is and how you can contribute to its ecological health. Salem Sound Coastwatch (SSCW) staff and volunteers will guide you during this hands-on learning experience. SSCW is an environmental nonprofit with an ongoing mission to protect and restore the ecological health of Salem Sound and its watershed. Our science-based initiatives include marine education, field research, municipal guidance, community engagement, and much more. We are dedicated to Salem Sound watershed communities and strive to create diverse, inclusive and accessible place-based, environmental education across the North Shore. Come celebrate Earth Day with us!
