Hydrous work is featured in this beautifully curated exhibit that celebrates artistic scientists and scientific artists who present ocean environments in beautiful and powerful ways. During the course of the exhibit, the Hydrous team will present a workshop on 3D modeling ocean ecosystems and serve on a panel that discusses the intersections of science and art.
Hydrous CEO Erika Woolsey will be delivering the closing Keynote on October 18th for the Smithsonian Digitization Fair. Sponsored by the Smithsonian’s Digitization Program Office, this two-day event will explore how digitized collections can affect lives in significant and measurable ways.
The Fair will be held at the Smithsonian’s S. Dillon Ripley Center (1100 Jefferson Dr., SW, Washington DC) on both days. Day One will include panels and keynote addresses by experts from outside the Smithsonian. Day Two will include talks by Smithsonian experts and an exhibit of digitization efforts at the Smithsonian.
Tickets are required - there will be no tickets at the door.

Map coral reefs with our 3D methodology, learn how to conduct scientific surveys, and improve your underwater photography skills! We invite you to explore some of the most beautiful coral reefs in the world onboard a luxury dive charter and to become part of the worldwide Hydrous community of scientists, designers, big-thinkers, and problem-solvers.
Hydrous CEO Erika Woolsey will serve on this panel moderated by curator Carin Jacobs, MA and joined by Peter Connors, PhD and Jennifer Parker, MFA.
$18 general; $15 PAC Members. Doors at 6:30.
Join us for an evening of 3D printing and environmental philosophy as Erika Woolsey and Elle Stapleton demonstrate 3D modeling of the world's coral reefs. These models are representations of living corals, made by stitching together underwater photographs. Using design as a new medium for storytelling, The Hydrous combines the fields of science, art, and narrative to create a new appreciation for our global oceans.
You are cordially invited to a reception at the Autodesk Gallery to celebrate art, science, and technology for ocean education. Please join us for a drink in support of the Hydrous.
You will learn about marine science and ocean education, view beautiful 3D coral models produced with Autodesk software, learn about our photogrammetry and virtual reality processes, and have the opportunity buy a few fabulous underwater photographs, or even tempt yourself to take a Hydrous expedition to the Maldives, to learn more about the science of the oceans.
Together with the K-12 Alliance/WestEd, Nora Hall represented the Hydrous in an annual program that brings together scientists and science teachers to increase participating teachers' content knowledge, increase teachers' pedagogical content knowledge, increase student academic achievement in science and mathematics, and build teacher and administrator leadership.
The California Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) K-8 Early Implementation Initiative was developed by the K-12 Alliance at WestEd with close collaborative input on its design and objectives from the State Board of Education, the California Department of Education, and Achieve. The districts and charters broadly represent the diversity of California schools in terms of demographics, location, and size. Collectively, they impact approximately 200,000 students.
You are invited to a small invitation-only event to celebrate the oceans, and the work of the Hydrous (www.thehydro.us) in engaging frontier visual technologies - virtual reality, photogrammetry, 3D printing and more - to expand scientific research, enhance public awareness, and provide youth with direct and engaging educational opportunities about the oceans. The Hydrous team will be in attendance to answer all your questions and deliver a brief presentation at 4pm. They will also have a new set of beautiful coral reef 3D models and compelling underwater photographs available for purchase. We hope you will join us in celebrating the ocean, and the accomplishments of this exciting new non-profit.
We are headed to Monterey Bay for a diving trip April 22nd-23rd. The goals of this trip are to:
- Deepen our network in CA by learning about the great work of individuals and teams (we are taking a tour of Moss Landing Marine Labs on Sunday)
- Host underwater photogrammetry and 360 photography workshops
- Celebrate Earth Day Weekend by exploring local ecosystems in California
