There has arguably never been a more important time to ensure ocean literacy and interest in STEM related careers. The Marine Science is a fun and exciting activity that fosters stewardship and long-term connection to the ocean through hands-on activities, experiences, and strong role models that will inspire the next generation of scientists, policy makers and citizens.
This activity strives to foster stewardship and long-term connection to the ocean through hands-on activities, experiences, and works to inspire the next generation of scientists. Each day’s activities focus on the different principles of ocean literacy which explain our impact on the ocean and the ocean’s impact on the rest of the world. Activities include a field trip to La Jolla Cove/Birch Aquarium, exploration of the marine environment, and participating in a scientific study where campers explore the coastal environment through the eyes of a scientist.
