Program for High School Students – Maine

The University of Maine’s School of Marine Sciences (SMS) and Darling Marine Center (DMC) are happy to announce a new program called Dive In for college-bound high school students interested in pursuing a career in the marine sciences.  Dive In is a three-day immersion program scheduled for August 9-11, 2010, that will give students a taste of one of the most popular scientific majors. While in residence at the DMC, students will explore the marine realm on foot, by kayak and aboard the R/V Ira C., and be exposed to marine biology, oceanography, scientific diving, remote ocean sensing, aquaculture, and more.

Parents are invited to join us on the last afternoon for seminars on career options and UMaines academic program in marine science. A final BBQ provides opportunities for students and parents to meet and mingle with UMaine marine science faculty and staff.

Dive In is FREE to accepted students. Transportation to and from the DMC is not included. Applications are  due June 30, 2010.  Dive In is open to students entering their junior and senior year in high school, though preference will be given to seniors.
