Science, Technology, Engineering and Math Student Experiences Aboard Ships
STEMSEAS aims to provide ship-based, 6-10 day exploratory experiences for undergraduates from diverse backgrounds aboard NSF-funded research vessels. Students will sail with experienced faculty mentors and engage in geoscience and oceanography activities (while also having fun)!
All expenses will be paid by the program- there is no cost to participants.
The tentative 2016 schedule is as follows:
May 10-18: Sail on the Oceanus from San Diego, CA to Honolulu, HI.
Looking to build work experience with the Seattle Aquarium? Interested in environmental education or community engagement? Check out the following three opportunities. All are hiring now, and many of these would work great for current undergrads.
