Camps

The Inner Space Center’s Ocean Science Exploration Camp is a week-long, Rhode Island, day camp (9am- 3pm daily), that explores different oceanographic themes. 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 will also visit university laboratory facilities, engage with scientists that are involved in active missions, and discover ocean careers.

 

This ISC will be hosting two weeks of Ocean Science Exploration camp in 2021!
