Scripps Institution of Oceanography High School Summer Course: The Ocean and the Environment

2015 Course Description: The ocean is the earth’s largest feature, covering 71% of the earth’s surface, and yet the vast majority of it remains unexplored. Budding explorers and young scientists are encouraged to take this course, which will introduce students to major physical ocean processes. Through labs, field experiments, projects, and lectures, students will learn the inherently interdisciplinary nature of oceanography, and explore connections between the biology, geology, and chemistry of the ocean and atmosphere. These subjects will be reviewed via non-graded daily quizzes and discussions of current environmental events, as well as weekly jeopardy games and exams. Students will be required to write a short research paper on a chosen case study detailing a significant example of ocean-related natural and/or human-induced change. During the final week of class, students will have the opportunity to participate in a mock “scientific conference,” where they will present the content of their papers to the class and engage in a question and answer period. This course is well-suited for students interested in pursuing a career or college major in oceanography or environmental science.
