Two year-long high school courses in science, and completion of grades 10, 11 or 12.

Course Description

MES night cruise
MES students on an evening sampling cruise.

This course is a university level course, designed for advanced high school students. Marine Environmental Science explores the diversity of coastal marine habitats and ecosystems and the tools scientists use to study them, with an emphasis on topics related to human impacts and environmental health. Virtual fieldwork will include explorations of the rocky intertidal zone, excursions to neighboring islands to observe seal and seabird colonies, and offshore trips to learn oceanographic sampling techniques and observe whale foraging grounds. Dive into marine science this summer and earn Cornell college credit.
