From the Cape May Point Science Center

Check this spot in the Herald every week to see what’s new at the Cape May Point Science Center.

The Cape May Point Science Center kicked off its second season on Friday May 3, 2024 with public tours at 10 a.m. and 12 p.m.. For the month of May, guided tours by our talented, knowledgeable volunteer docents will be conducted Friday to Sunday at 10 a.m. and 12 p.m. as well as Memorial Day, Monday, May 27. You can purchase tour tickets in advance online.

The Science Center is also pleased to be hosting the exhibit, Monotypic: Evolution and Adaptations of the World’s Most Distinctive Species for the month of May. This exhibit represents the culmination of over two years of research and artistry for the BFA Honors Capstone project of Rowan University student Emerson Harman. It highlights families of animals that contain a single unique species such as the Platypus, Portuguese Man O’ War as well as tropical birds the Hoatzin and Oilbird among others. Viewing of this exhibit is included with regular tour admission.

From Thursday, May 30 to Saturday, June 1, Cape May Point Science Center is excited to host its first ever Marine Science Symposium. Participants will have several chances to network with area colleagues starting with an evening ice breaker event on Thursday May 30 that will include a welcoming address by Dr. Sean Burcher, Science Director of CMPSC and Engineer at Cellular Tracking Technologies, and a wine tasting.

Friday, May 31 welcomes marine science students and professionals from throughout the region for a full day of keynote speakers, and oral and poster presentations on a wide range of important marine science topics. On Saturday, June 1, conference attendees will be treated to a whale and dolphin watch with our conference collaborator and partner The Cape May Whale Watch and Research Center aboard the American Star, and can tour the Science Center to learn more about ways we support several local marine science projects.
