Summer Marine Lab Experience for High School Students


We regret to announce that 2018 was the final High School Summer Marine Lab Experience. The lab will not be held in 2019. 

Over the course of the weeklong program, students in previous years got 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 Catalina Island. The program was offered in partnership by USC Sea Grant Program, Center for Dark Energy Biosphere Investigations, and Wrigley Institute for Environmental Studies.
