Weeklong Summer Science Programs provide high school students from across the country the opportunity to visit the USC Phillip K.

Over the course of a week, students get amazing opportunities to work with local researchers, conduct their own research projects, learn about careers in marine science, build their own ROVs, snorkel, kayak, and explore the marine protected areas around the island.

The program is FREE to the students including transportation and will be limited to twenty applicants.  It is offered in partnership by USC Sea Grant Program, Center for Dark Energy Biosphere Investigations, and Wrigley Institute for Environmental Studies. Applications for the 2016 program are due 5 PM on March 25, 2016.
