This semester, the Marine Education Center is moving to our newly constructed facility at Cedar Point in Ocean Springs. Check back for After School Marine Biologist in the Fall 2018. 

Below is a sample of the previous After School Marine Biologist camp.

Are You a Future Marine Biologist? Thinking about a career in science? Get a jump start at the Marine Education Center's new After School Marine Biologist program. Spend one afternoon a week immersed in a learning environment with the scientists, researchers, and educators of GCRL's Marine Education Center. Note that start and end times are different for each day.

Grades 4-6 / 2:45-4:45 p.m.

Grades 4-8 / 3:15-5:15 p.m.

Bus pick-up at your school may be possible for schools with six or more students participating in the program.

This is NOT for couch potatoes. There will be hiking, kayaking, fishing, dissections, and chemistry. Children gain new skills and experiences that will last a lifetime. Once a week, participants embark on a field study excursion by hiking or boating or participate in a lab activity.

2017 spring semester — $300.

Tuition includes fees for boats, kayaks, bus transportation, program materials, field equipment, laboratory materials and specimens. An afternoon snack is provided; after all, they are going to need some energy!
