Students will receive lectures and take part in hands-on activities in various areas of geoscience (marine geology, physical oceanography and atmospheric science, marine biology, marine chemistry/biogeochemistry, and remote sensing/GIS). Students will also enroll in College Algebra or Calculus I course, as well as in a Freshman Seminar course. They will also take part in field trips.
Who is eligible? High school seniors who are interested in pursuing a college degree in fall 2012, in one of the geoscience disciplines: environmental science, marine science, meteorology/atmospheric science, civil, fisheries science, environmental or electrical engineering, geography, GIS/ remote sensing. Students must have a current minimum cumulative GPA of 2.7 on a 4.0 point scale.
Is there any out of pocket expense for participants? No! In fact, participants will be paid $500.00 per week for the six weeks. Travel, meals and lodging will also be covered.
