WALPOLE — A three- day August program at the University of Maine’s Darling Marine Center (DMC), will give high school juniors and seniors the opportunity to learn about marine science academic and career options.
Dive In! is a new overnight program at DMC, a UMaine marine science laboratory and outreach center that serves as research home base for scientists from around the world who depend on access to the Gulf of Maine for their scientific inquiry.
Students in the Dive In! program will explore the marine environment on foot, by kayak and aboard the R/V Ira C., the DMC research vessel. Subject areas will include marine biology, oceanography, scientific diving, remote ocean sensing and aquaculture. Parents will be invited to an Aug. 11 afternoon seminar about UMaine’s School of Marine Science and career options in related fields.
The program is open to students who will be high school juniors and seniors this fall, with preference given to those who will be seniors. More information, including an application, is available online at http://server.dmc.maine.edu/divein.html. The application deadline is June 30.
