REMOTE LEARNING / HOMESCHOOL
RESEARCH EXPERIENCE AT HOME
Are you interested in a career in science? Project Oceanology’s Research Experience from Home is a unique opportunity for students to participate in authentic scientific research experiences by designing and conducting their own outdoor research projects - all from their own neighborhood! Staff and students will build a close-knit virtual community and forge connections as they design, conduct, and troubleshoot experiments, and analyze and communicate their results. Along the way, we'll also do a series of entertaining short experiments and engineering challenges. We’ll provide one-on-one and small group mentorship, and work with you to make sure your project is fun, interesting, and relevant. Project O will send materials and scientific equipment to you by mail, and we’ll take advantage of our geography to compare findings between hometowns. The experience will include a live 1.5-hour meeting each week for activities, discussion, and sharing, plus independent research work and small group meetings with Project O mentors. On the last day, families will be invited to join us virtually for a celebratory research symposium!
Project O programming is designed to support student progress toward meeting the Next Generation Science Standards, and can easily be integrated with school in-person, remote learning, or homeschool curricula.
Duration: 10 Weeks; Meets virtually weekly on Wednesdays for 1.5 hour
Grades: 7 - 12
