Connecticut River Institute, (CRI), has been designed for the study of marine and aquatic ecosystems of the Connecticut River, learning both natural and cultural history of the area. This program is for students who have completed 6th through 12th grade and are from the CT River Valley area. CRI runs for two weeks each session, Monday through Friday, 9:00am - 4:00pm.

The Connecticut River Institute brings students together for two weeks of age appropriate, hands-on, inquiry-based activities. Student teams will board Project Oceanology's research vessel to collect, examine and record marine life as well as analyze water conditions in the Connecticut River and Long Island Sound.

Students will participate in daily workshops to enhance their communication and team-building skills. During these sessions, students examine aspects of multiculturalism and diversity and learn that tolerance, understanding and cooperation are necessary if the group is to successfully complete its task. In addition, students will visit relevant other institutions that provide a cultural/historical perspective on the Connecticut River Valley.

Connecticut River Valley Towns Include:
