Blackbeard: The Science of Pirates, 300th Edition!

Come out to the fourth annual QAR Lab Open House to experience the ongoing conservation of the infamous pirate Blackbeard's flagship, the Queen Anne's Revenge. This year marks the 300th anniversary of the ship’s grounding and death of Blackbeard, and we are celebrating this intersection of science and North Carolina history! Be an archaeological conservator for a day and learn how we use chemistry, physics, technology, and more through fun hands-on activities and behind-the-scenes demonstrations! This FREE event is open to all ages! Help us appreciate ECU's partnership with this historic project.
