Youth Ocean Explorers is a 4 week, hands-on marine science program for middle to high school-aged students interested in studying coastal, marine & environmental science, natural resource management, and conservation. The program involves a combination of short presentations and lectures daily from UVI faculty, staff, and community partners along with field activities utilizing scientific tools to supplement those presentations. Participants report to the UVI Center for Marine & Environmental Studies but can expect to travel with staff to other on-island locations for field work and activities.
Registration for the 2019 Youth Ocean Explorers Summer Program is now open. Youth in grades 7-12 are eligible to apply for this 4-week marine science based summer enrichment opportunity. Don't let this opportunity swim by, register at vimas.uvi.edu today!
