The Next Generation of Scientists Begin Work at BIOS
Frequent BIOS visiting teacher, Brian Slopey, is being recognized by the Vermont Academy of Science and Engineering as one of Vermont’s two Outstanding Science Teachers of the Year.
An oceanographer is deploying an undersea glider to take measurements during the Category 3 storm, which is expected to hit Bermuda. Hopefully, the rare underwater perspective will yield insights that can be used to develop forecasting models.
An underwater glider will examine the impact of hurricanes on our ocean.
University of Wisconsin students study in Bermuda for a week long faculty-led Geology 360 course, Coral Reefs, Oceanography and Geology of Bermuda.
The Montpelier Re Foundation has awarded scholarships worth a combined $15,000 to two Bermudian students, including Meteorology student Michael Cavin Johnston, intern with the Risk Prediction Initiative at BIOS.
Dalhousie University and BIOS, both global leaders in marine science education and research, are launching a joint initiative that provides a new experiential learning program for students in oceanography.
A Dalhousie fund intended to support student scholarships and faculty exchanges at BIOS has raised nearly $1 million.
Former Princeton Environmental Institute (PEI) intern, Beth McKenna's senior thesis examines the delicate environmental balance of coral reefs.
Amy Gobel, an undergraduate student in the Department of Geosciences at Princeton University working in the Environmental Quality Program lab with Dr. Andrew Peters, investigates how marine aerosols contribute to Nr deposition to the ocean downwind of North America.
While majors in medicine, computers and information management, and biotechnology remain popular, there are a variety of majors in ocean science that can provide Bermudian students with unique opportunities to explore the world and contribute to the global understanding of how the ocean influences climate change, the world economy, and our daily lives.
Eight secondary schools will earn $30,000 each when their students team up with local charities again under the “Dollars for Hours” project led by PartnerRe.
This summer, Bermuda is the testing ground for a unique project that aims to bring a renewable source of electrical power to disaster-torn regions.
On June 13, 2013 BIOS celebrated the achievements of the 2012/13 class of the Center of Excellence in Observational Oceanography (CofE).
S3 student JD Symonds, now interning at the Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences, told them: “I am extremely proud to be the first recipient of the Nahgé O’Brien Science Award.”
BIOS will bid a fond farewell to Forrest as he sets forth on the newest chapter in his education: pursuing an Associate’s of Applied Science Degree in Marine Industry Technology from the Landing School in Arundel, Maine (U.S.) on a full scholarship.
ONE WEEK LEFT TO APPLY!
The application deadline for applying to our summer courses is just a week away, April 15th. Late entries will be considered depending on availability.
Our summer courses are offered to undergraduates and recent graduates, and partial scholarships are available to international students from developing countries, US, Canadian and UK students, and academic credit transfer is possible.
After spending the summer working in BIOS labs on a variety of research projects, the 2012 interns have headed back to their respective universities to continue their studies. Before they left, some of the interns took a moment to talk with us about their experiences. Read on to learn what a typical day is like in the life of a summer intern, as well as some memorable moments and what the interns feel they gained from their time at BIOS.
1000 local students from schools across the island visit the BIOS over a two week period to participate in the BIOS Explorer Program which provides teachers and students with hands-on experience in marine science.
Over a two day period in October, 45 teachers from 25 primary and secondary schools took part in "Expedition Sargasso" - the professional development workshop at BIOS.
High school biology classes are in for a change, courtesy of a new text book involving the Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences.
While students enjoy the half-term break this month a group of approximately 50 teachers–many from the public school system–will be participating in the annual BIOS Professional Development Workshops. The workshops emphasize making real-world connections between current scientific research topics and what’s being taught in science classrooms.
