Intro To Marine Science

 

Intro to Marine Science Majors:

Majors: Campers spend about half of their day in the “Major” class, allowing them to gain in-depth knowledge in their chosen scientific area - Intro to Marine Science or Intro to Engineering.  

  • Intro to Marine Science: Students will experiment with the physical and chemical properties of water, explore major marine ecosystems and phyla, and dissect a fish!

‚ÄčMinors: In addition to the "Major" activities, students participate in “Minor” labs that allow them to gain a breadth of scientific knowledge by exploring different scientific disciplines.  These may include activities such as extracting the DNA of a strawberry or delving into forensic science with blood type analysis. 

Enrichment Activities in the afternoons and evenings give campers the opportunity for informal science learning, as well as leadership and problem-solving training through workshops, experiments, guest speakers, and recreational activities. Students will also attend a mid-program excursion to a local science venue.

Intro to Engineering, Anatomy/Physiology and Intro to Marine Science run concurrently at Stanford and MIT.  Students will choose ONE of these three courses.
