USC SUMMER PROGRAM FOR YOUNG MEN IN SCIENCE
The USC Sea Grant & Wrigley Institute invites young men to be a part of a community of scientists. Students will discover and explore the aquatic and terrestrial life of Catalina Island and its surrounding waters.
Exploring the Environment
This field & lab-oriented program challenges students to explore ecological and biological principles through an interactive approach to learning. Participants will engage with USC students and scientists. They will have an opportunity to do:
laboratory experiments and
learn abut the how, what & why of marine research from the Researchers
These activities instruct students about the interaction among physical, chemical, and biological components of the environment. Students will also learn about the impact that human activities can have on the environment. Science is integrated with cultural and social issues to offer a well-rounded view of an island ecosystem.
A dynamic community of young scientists is built through team projects, instructional and recreational activities and mentoring programs. Students interact with graduate and faculty who are studying various aspects of science. They will explore diverse careers in environmental, biological, and physical sciences.
