MarineQuest Wilmington, North Carolina With a rich, 34-year history, MarineQuest has a proven track record of education and well-honed programs for students from Pre-K to 12 th grade. An outreach arm of the University of North Carolina Wilmington, their focus is on marine environmental education. Whether it's working in an ocean lab for a summer or exploring local marine habitats, MarineQuest helps put kids in touch with the marine environment. Opportunities range from half-day feld trips to week-long stays and can include a research vessel cruise or discover scuba program. Through MarineQuest, students learn the biological, chemical, geological, and physical aspects of the ocean along with marine technology, and there are more than 30 summer programs for kids of all ages. Broadreach International Trips Broadreach is a global summer educational adventure program that leads over 70 worldwide trips for middle school, high school and college students. Their Caribbean Marine Conservation Program gives students a chance to learn about conservation in a hands-on way, and then put what they learn to use. Students volunteer in the Saba and Statia Marine Parks in the Leeward Islands of the Caribbean to conduct research that will help protect and conserve local reefs, and they can earn college credit while doing it. Other opportunities include the British Columbia Marine Mammal Studies Program, where students work with leading researchers in the feld to assist in whale behavior research. Still more programs are available in the Bahamas focusing on marine biology, and in Fiji, where students learn about and study shark behavior while going on actual shark dives.
