This week-long day camp introduces students to earth and ocean sciences and science careers through hands-on activities emphasizing solutions to real-world problems. During the week, campers may participate in the following activities:
Try on SCUBA diving gear and simulate a dive in a hyperbaric chamber
Identify different marine mammals by looking at tags and skulls
Analyze water samples and see how buoys help predict large-scale climate events
Learn to use marine navigation charts and practice charting skills
Learn about hazardous substances and respond to a hypothetical spill
Interact with NOAA scientists
Campers spend the first part of the week visiting a variety of NOAA science offices, where they participate in activities that highlight the scientists’ work. Later in the week, campers work together with NOAA scientists to solve an environmental mystery. Between activities with scientists, campers have fun participating in team-building exercises and outside games.
NOAA Science Camp Engages Middle School Youth
Students entering sixth, seventh or eighth grade in the fall may attend. Campers come from public, private, and home schools with varying levels of science background. Since the program is aligned with grade-specific learning objectives, students in other grades are not eligible to attend. Students are permitted to attend for more than one year, but please be aware that the camp is similar from year to year and not intended for returning campers.
NOAA Science camp is a day camp program only — camp runs from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. during weekdays.
Online Registration typically opens in mid-March.
