Weeklong Summer Science Programs for Young Women provide middle school and high school students the opportunity to visit the USC Phillip K. Wrigley Marine Science Center on Catalina Island, and other coastal sites. Young women are invited to be a part of a community of scientists as they discover and explore the aquatic and terrestrial life of coastal California. The students form a dynamic community of young scientists through team projects, instructional and recreational activities and mentoring programs. They learn the effects that humans have on delicate ecosystems though the study of marine biology and oceanography. Through engagement with USC students, faculty and guest scientists, students learn the value of science, what is required to pursue a career in science and the wide diversity of science applications including environmental policy, research science, education, illustration, and diving safety.
