About Girls in Ocean Science
Middle School & High School

General information

These exciting conferences are dedicated to inspiring young women to pursue degrees and careers in the sciences. Fourteen prominent female scientists from around the country will interact with the girls in a series of hands-on workshops aboard our research vessel, the Sea Explorer, and in the Ocean Institute’s teaching labs. 

The conferences, split into two single day sessions, are designed for enthusiastic middle and high school girls who have an interest in science. Young women will explore careers in areas such as oceanography, marine ecology, biochemistry, and deep sea science.
