OceansWide 2010 Programs
About the 2010 Programs
OceansWide programs have been created to give the students and teachers of Maine a first hand look into the wonders of the largest habitat on Earth - the ocean just a stone's throw from their front door.Read More
This year we have expanded our camps to five days. There will be classroom lessons, outings on the waters of the Gulf of Maine and lab sessions at the Darling Marine Center with ship and ROV excursions just off the dock. Camps will offer students a chance to learn all about remotely operated vehicles.
Also new this year is our overnight camp the first week of August. We will be exploring how sea creatures light up their world (bioluminescence), how some of them prefer to eat at night and we will be enjoying a camp fire night complete with s'mores and stories.Get more details and register here.
