2017 High School Marine Lab on Catalina Island

Welcome to summer! From July 6 - 12, 2017, USC Sea Grant, in partnership with the Center for Dark Energy Biosphere Investigations and Wrigley Institute for Environmental Studies, is hosting 16 high school students from across the country at the USC Phillip K. Wrigley Institute for Environmental Studies on Catalina Island. Over the course of the week, students will 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.
