Youth Experiencing the Ocean

The Youth Experiencing the Ocean project provided field education experiences for middle school students from Lionel Wilson College Preparatory Academy and Millsmont Secondary Academy in Oakland, CA as a continuation of the ¡Youth and the Ocean! (OEDG) project. Project components included a series of Saturday field trips throughout the 2010-2011 school year, which included family field trip and parent workshops, a 4-day long ocean sciences field-based day camp offered Spring 2011 and Summer 2011, a high school intern program, and professional development designed to help teachers integrate field trips with their classroom curriculum.

Youth Experiencing the Ocean was funded by the California Coastal Commission Whale Tail Grant Fund
