Weeklong Summer Science Programs provide middle school and high school students the opportunity to visit the USC Phillip K. Wrigley Marine Science Center on Catalina Island, and other coastal sites. Over the course of a week, students get amazing opportunities to work with local researchers, conduct their own research projects, learn about careers in marine science, build their own ROVs and explore the marine protected areas around the island. Check out the video below of the 2012 Summer Science Week and the presentations of the final student research projects from the 2013 Summer Science Week!
