This weeklong Rhode Island summer program explores different oceanographic themes such as biological oceanography, ocean technology, or physical oceanography. Through a variety of hands-on activities, demonstrations, and field investigations, campers explore the dynamic properties of the global ocean, the animals that live within it, and the tools and technologies used for ocean exploration.
Throughout the week, campers tune into live oceanographic expeditions and are surrounded by video, audio, and other oceanographic data, experiencing the amazing ocean discoveries that unfold at the ISC in real time. Campers also visit university laboratory facilities, engage with scientists that are involved in active missions, and discover ocean careers.
The 2018 camp will focus on Biological Oceanography. Please sign up for the ISC newsletter to receive details on camp dates and other information once available.
