Participants in Summer Marine Studies spend 3 weeks doing an in-depth research project investigating a variety of topics involving the Poquonock River. Learn how to operate scientific equipment such as electronic meters and microscopes. Teams of 2 to 4 students will prepare a written and oral presentation.

Students also venture on the Enviro-Lab to Goff Point, Long Island for an overnight camp out. At the end of the 3-week session, parents are invited to an evening potluck celebration and multi-media presentation by the students.

Students in grades 7-12 are eligible for this program, however, they must have COMPLETED 7th grade.

Sample daily schedule:
8:30am morning assembly
9:30 field work on Enviro-Lab, or adjacent beaches and estuaries
12:00 lunch
12:30pm continued field work on boats, beaches or estuaries
4:30 parents pick up


Some member school districts pre-pay for students to attend SMSP. Check with your science teacher to see if tuition could be free. Project Oceanology has also applied for a grant from the State of Connecticut Department of Education for additional Connecticut students to participate in this program for the summer of 2015. We hope to know grant status by mid-June.
