RYE — Seacoast Science Center is offering ongoing programs for science-minded high school students interested in pursuing studies in marine biology or a related science field.
Applications are being accepted for the Marine Science Fellowship Program, to be held on Saturdays from Feb. 2 to 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 program is two to three hours per week. The course schedule includes select Saturdays 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 from 3 to 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, to be held Monday to Friday, Aug. 5-16 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Both programs teach about marine ecology and biology through hands-on indoor and outdoor activities and connect students with marine biologists and scientists working in related careers.
