High School Courses

This summer, Shoals Marine Laboratory is going to bring marine science and our island laboratory to you We are now offering interactive online courses that will incorporate custom-made live and recorded digital media. We will have scientists and a digital videographer on island to bring the field to you and your classmates. Students can stop us to ask questions, zoom in on specific things you want to see up close - it will be as close to being there as we can deliver in a remote learning setting. In addition, we have an amazing line up of marine scientists lined up to present interactive webinars to all, starting June 1. Please join us. And don't forget, we have financial assistance to support students.

The Bow Seat Ocean Awareness Programs is a New England-based nonprofit with an international reach that has a mission to inspire and empower the next generation of ocean caretakers through art, science, and advocacy. Bow Seat runs an annual Ocean Awareness Student Contest, which challenges middle and high school students to communicate the science of pressing ocean issues through four categories: Art, Poetry, Prose, or Film. Bow Seat awards prizes up to $1,500, and also helps to find exhibition and publishing opportunities for the winners throughout the year. In 2016, the contest received over 2,100 submissions from 44 U.S. states and 67 countries this year! Shoals Marine Laboratory is a proud partner of Bow Seat because we both believe that art and science collaborations improve education and communication! For more information: fromthebowseat.org
