New LAB opening
East Coast LAB (Life at the Boundary) is a new exhibition about the Hikurangi plate boundary and associated natural hazards like earthquakes and tsunami.
The LAB at the aquarium is a newly developed interactive education space which will be used for school groups, research talks and functions, as well as being open to the general public as part of general admission. It will include a tsunami wave tank demonstration, information on the latest earthquakes in New Zealand, the opportunity to practice a “Drop, Cover, Hold” drill, as well as to become part of some the science projects going on.
