My daughter and I visited this summer, she is 11 and an aspiring marine biologist. She was warmly welcomed and was intrigued by the research. So much so that she is demanding a return, staying at IZE next summer for a few days then visiting again. Thanks guys, I hope you reserved another beer for me... :)
