Students go visit marine life in the Marine Biology three-week summer science program

We’re DIVING into the exciting stuff!

Shark Week will explore not only sharks, but ALL monsters of the deep. You might build scale models to get a grasp on the true size of these aquatic predators, examine real shark teeth up close, plot shark sightings against seal populations, and so much more. 

What’s the beauty of a program like this? We’re not just going to talk about these sea creatures – we plan to bring real ones into the classroom. Prepare for a dogfish shark dissection, squid dissection, and a chance to hang out with any small reptiles and amphibians we can get our hands on. 

This is a one-week program for rising 6th-rising 9th graders. Day and residential options are available for this program.

Student Comments

‘He allowed room for exploration and even encourage discovery through experience. Steve was very patient and interesting to work with. 10/10.’

‘The program was fast paced and enjoyable… I enjoyed checking the tank, and learning about what being a marine biologist entails. All good things.’

‘One thing I liked about this program was that we were able to go on field trips to better understand the topic. I found it fun, interesting, and I learned a lot from them. Also, having an aquarium made it so much more easier to look at creatures but also interesting. I absolutely love marine science and I thought this program helped a lot.’
