It is the perfect program to spark interest in marine ecosystems and understand how it is all connected, from water quality to whales.

Highlights include:

  • Unique college prep and field work exposure

  • Experience incredible marine life 

  • Marine species identification 

  • Water and land-based research 

  • Environmental service hours 

  • Small group learning 

  • Stress-reduction activities

  • Take-home action plans

  • On-going learning community

  • Curiosity inspiration through inquiry based learning

  • Individual strength recognition
  • STEAM (A for art!) ​​

All of this combines in a way that is both useful for college applications/scholarships and provides great exposure for those considering a future in marine biology or marine conservation!  

The following Next Generation Science Standards are met: HS-LS2-6, HS-LS2-7, HS-LS4-5, HS-ESS1-5, HS-ESS1-6, HS-ESS2-2, HS-ETS1-2.

Each day's lesson will focus on the specific topic listed, however we never can predict what marine life each day will bring! The ultimate goal is to experience the animals' ecosystem and understand how students can become leaders in marine conservation - seeing whales is never guaranteed.
