Marine Science Internship is dedicated to delivering resume-building skills and training in the foundations of scientific research and science diving. This residential 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 live full time at BIOS’s research facility while they work toward building their SCUBA confidence to enable them to engage in their own independent research projects.

In Their Own Words

“Through Marine Science Internship I was able to gain hands-on experience learning how to run experiments, and how to gather and analyze data.” Alex Quinn-Sirera, 2018.

“I learned what it is like to be a marine biologist. I was also able to increase my confidence in science and my SCUBA skills all while making new friends.” Marcus Rewan, 2018.
