WOODS HOLE – Two summer programs for high school students are being offered by the Woods Hole Science Aquarium.

Careers in marine science will be the focus of a five week internship and two week seminar. Both will focus on marine science, animals, education, conservation and aquarium operation.

Interns must commit to 20 to 25 hours per week and be prepared to be messy and smelly. One of their duties will be assisting a naturalist with public shore-side collecting walks. Careers in marine and environmental science will be part of the program including visits to multiple research institutions.

The two week seminar will teach how to understand and manage marine resources through presentations by scientists from a variety of fields.

Having completed 10th, 11th or 12th grade is required as well as being at least 16 years old by July 2nd. Application forms can be found online and must be postmarked by March 23rd or e-mailed by March 30th. The announcement of those who have been accepted will occur in the middle of April.

The aquarium houses approximately 95 species and hosts more than 50,000 visitors annually.

The National Oceanographic Atmospheric Administration presents the programs in conjunction with the Marine Biological Laboratory.
