Highlights From the 2022 Lamont Open House
On Saturday, October 8, more than 1,500 visitors of all ages came out to Open House at Columbia Climate School’s Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory. There, they played with glacial goo, watched trash cans erupt with water and ping pong balls, and performed hands-on science experiments — all while learning about how Lamont researchers help us to better understand our planet, from the bottom of the ocean to the top of the atmosphere. Below are a few highlights from the 2022 Open House.

I wouldn’t be surprised if I were told that 20 thousand attended @LamontEarth and @columbiaclimate LDEO Open House where they witnessed swimming plankton, exploding volcanoes, hear seismic sounds, learn how trees tell stories and and so much more. pic.twitter.com/4GaFGLRbI5
