Center to offer marine programs for high school students

RYE — The Seacoast Science Center now offers ongoing programs for science-minded high school students who interested in pursuing studies in marine biology or a related science field.

Applications are now being accepted for the Marine Science Fellowship Program, to be held on Saturdays from February 2-June 9. The Fellowship is designed to give students in grades 10-12 who are interested in the marine sciences, the opportunity to expand their studies in a practical, supportive, resource-rich environment.

This immersive program will connect students to marine scientists and educators in the research, education and museum fields. Students will be encouraged to do an in-depth project in an area that interests them and schedule marine science job-shadow activities.

Students who participated in the program last semester may continue their research project or opt to study a new topic. New students are welcome.

The expected time commitment for the Marine Science Fellowship Program is 2-3 hours per week. The course schedule includes select Saturday mornings from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., plus additional study, project, and/or volunteer time to be conducted on your own, as arranged with the program leader. If participants are unable to make a Saturday session, students can attend the following Wednesday evening, from 3-5:30 p.m.

This summer, students in grades 9-12 may enroll in a two-week camp program, Marine Biology Camp for High School Students. Camp will be held Monday-Friday, August 5-16, 9 a.m.-3 p.m.
