The University of Rhode Island’s (URI) College of Ocean Engineering, in partnership with the URI Inner Space Center (ISC), is offering Ocean Exploration: Naval Science and Technology Camp to current high school students. This week-long day camp will focus on exploring the ocean using marine technologies. Campers will build and test a variety of oceanographic tools and instruments, such as remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) and ocean sensors, and engaging with scientists who are involved in active missions to explore the otherwise “unknown ocean.”
With funding from the U.S. Office of Naval Research STEM program, the ISC is able to offer a discounted cost of $200/camper for this week-long camp. A limited number of full scholarships will be available (described below).
To apply for a spot in the July 2019 session of the Ocean Exploration: Naval Science and Technology Camp, please complete the application below. The application deadline is May 10th. All applications will be reviewed and acceptance will be based on merit and teacher recommendations. Enrollment will be capped at 20 campers. Please note, only current high school students enrolled through the 2019/2020 school year will be considered.
If selected, an electronic invoice will be emailed to your parent/guardian. It will need to be paid within one week. You may choose to either pay the full amount of camp costs (as stated above) or at least a 50% deposit. Once this initial payment is received, you will be officially registered for the July 2019 session of Ocean Exploration: Naval Science and Technology Camp. Only one registration may be completed at a time. All final payments for camp will be due on or before Monday, June 24, 2019.
