Roger Williams University Marine Biology Summer Camp



This weeklong program serves as an introduction to the study of coastal ecosystems for high school students. Boys and girls utilize the marine environments of the southern New England coast as a classroom. Topics of study include coastal ecosystems, food webs, productivity of the sea, plants and animals in the coastal zone, and current events pertaining to marine biology. Students embark on hands-on field excursions in which they learn oceanographic sampling techniques, explore bay ecosystems by kayak, snorkel along barrier beaches and tidal pools, identify marine organisms and go whale watching. Lab demonstrations and guest presentations complete the program.
