BIOS is closely monitoring the situation surrounding the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) to best protect its employees and visitors. Details on the measures taken to manage COVID-19 in Bermuda can be found here.

Marine Science Internship is dedicated to delivering resume-building skills and training in the foundations of scientific research and science diving. This program is geared toward students aged 14-16 looking to pursue advanced studies in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) subjects. Through this 2-week immersive program students participate in research-based field trips, conduct laboratory investigations and work on team building skills during group activities and projects centered on BIOS’s scientific research. During Marine Science Internship students work toward building their SCUBA confidence which enables them to engage in their own independent research project.

In Their Own Words

“Even though I've lived in Bermuda all my life, I never appreciated the true, rich diversity of the reefs until I did this program. My eyes were opened to an enriched world of algae and microscopic organisms and plankton and SO MANY kinds of damselfish that I'd never been aware of before.” Maya Luthi, 2021

“I enjoyed my time here so much and we delved into so much more than I could have imagined. It gave me a really good scope as to what some of the scientists do on a day-to-day basis and helped me understand what marine biology entails.” Annika Miller, 2021
