ECOGIG co-principal investigator Dr. Andreas Teske with UNC-Chapel Hill recently gave a talk on the Gulf of Mexico at the North Carolina Marbles Kids Museum- a science fair and cinema center in Raleigh that provides a venue for science-related events, talks and activities for school kids.   His talk focused on the Gulf's deep-sea ecosystem five years after the Deepwater Horizon and featured an hour long Q&A session about a number of topics, including the submerisble vehicle Alvin and what life is like on a research ship.  The event was well attended by local 8th grade students.
