Our scientists travel to faraway places for research and fieldwork. Join us for this fun session to learn about what our researchers eat on land and in the middle of the ocean, and how they have to conserve everything they’ve packed. We’ll hear about innovative techniques for getting food and water, and unique recipes that you can also try at home!
