The Education Center conducts classes in five well-equipped rooms, at the nearby marina, and at the exhibition of the Gdynia Aquarium. During the classes, we use specimens collected over decades of work by scientists from MIR-PIB.
The room is designed for conducting laboratory and research classes for groups of up to 25 people. It is equipped with laboratory furniture, stereoscopic microscopes, laboratory glassware, sampling devices for workshop participants, as well as multimedia equipment that enables teaching using the latest image presentation techniques. Additionally, there is a visualizer that allows observing organisms on a large screen.
