Registration for 2017 NOAA Science Camp is now open! NOAA Science Camp is held at the NOAA Campus in Seattle, WA and introduces both middle and high school students to the diverse range of careers and research conducted by our scientists. Three programs are offered: Middle School Science Camp, High School Junior Leadership Program and a Remotely Operated Vehicle Mini Session. PMEL scientists (NOAA and JISAO) lead activities relating to engineering and oceanography, including how scientists conduct their research when they go to sea, how scientists work with engineers to solve complex marine questions, how currents and trace chemicals move throughout the ocean, and even how buoys help predict large-scale climate events such as Tsunamis. The camps will run at various times from July 10-26.

The middle school camp offers two sessions: July 10-14 and July 17-21, 2017.  NOAA Science Camp has partnered again with Atlantis STEAM to offer a three-day mini-session where campers will get to design, build, and drive their own Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs). This is an exciting addition to our summer programming - please check out the website and register for this session being offered on July 24-26, 2017. Look for the green registration button on each page to register your camper.
