Science camp offers exploration of wind, weather, waves

Posted: June 1, 2012 - 7:14am

The 4th annual NOAA Sun to Sea Science Camp will be held June 4-9 at the Auke Bay Laboratories and the National Weather Service Juneau Forecast Office.

Sun to Sea Science Camp offers students the chance to explore the world of wind, weather, waves and more through hands-on learning techniques. Students will learn what the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is and how NOAA science affects their lives, whether through protecting the coastal zones and marine life, providing daily weather forecasts, or managing the local fisheries.

The camp schedule includes activities such as hydro acoustics to listen to whale vocalizations, beach seining, tide pool exploration, clam digging to get clams for PSP testing, Ocean Acidification experiments and boat trips to use a Remote Underwater vehicle, to name a few.

For more information, contact Tom, 789-6051.
