Supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation's Division of Ocean Sciences, this Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program offers undergraduates in STEM an opportunity to conduct guided research internships in marine science.
Under the guidance of a faculty mentor, interns work in a research-intensive atmosphere on a topic in chemical, physical, or biological oceanography or marine biology/geology/ biogeochemistry. The program includes weekly research seminars, professional development presentations, and field trips to nearby coastal marine systems. Interns will also present written and oral reports at the close of the program. For more information, contact Dr. Joanna York at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1-302-831-7040.
Environment, Climate and Ocean (ECO) Camp is an instructional camp for students entering grades 7 through 12, focusing on the atmospheric, oceanic, and biogeochemical processes at work in the Delaware Bay.
Camp academic activities include classroom instruction, discussions, lectures and visits to modern oceanographic/atmospheric laboratories, as well as field excursions for sampling and exploration.
Students will gain an understanding of sea breeze, tides, habitat loss, species adaptation, saltwater marsh filtration, sediment transport, beach erosion due to storm activity and the use of robotics in a marine environment. The camp will also address regional/local climate change, mitigation/adaptation opportunities, local impacts and strategies, and alternative energy. Information about UD program offerings will also be included.
ECO Camp is run jointly by the College of Earth, Ocean and Environment and SMArtSummer, a program of Cab Calloway School of the Arts and The Charter School of Wilmington.
