YOE Summer Program

The Youth Ocean Explorers Summer Program is a 4 week, intensive, summer enrichment program that uses marine science as the lens through which we teach students about Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics, also known as STEM. Students enrolled in this program are exposed to the joys of our marine environment whilst learning about the myriad of science-based careers associated with this field.
