Marine Biologist In Training Summer Camp

Monday, July 27, 2020 - Saturday, August 22, 2020


Attention Future Female Marine Biologists!

This week-long virtual camp provides girls with the opportunity to learn what it’s like to be a marine biologist!

Sea Smart’s Girls-Only Marine Biologist in Training (MBIT) online program will challenge the widely-held stereotype that STEM (Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) careers are for boys, and instead provide a canvas for girls to learn, flourish and enroot a sense of belonging in STEM. Girls in our program will learn about marine ecology, scientific research, and how to pursue a career in marine sciences. We will be hosting professional women in STEM to discuss their work and answer questions about pursuing a career in STEM. These will be inspirational talks by female scientist guest speakers from university students, researchers, and women in the industry.

This summer camp will build girls’ confidence and curiosity in STEM while inspiring and empowering girls to become environmental leaders and scientists!

*NOTE: Marine Biologists in Training camps are for girls only to help address the vast underrepresentation of girls in science-related fields. Sea Smart embraces an inclusive definition of “women” and “girls” that includes people who identify as women, girls, trans, gender queer, gender non-binary, Two-Spirit, and gender questioning. An inclusive environment means all participants feel safe and supported, however they may identify.
