CWC provided scholarships for two high school students to participate in LEAD Camp (LUMCON’S Estuarine Awareness and Discovery), a week-long science camp that provides both lab and field-based learning experiences, exposing students to Louisiana’s coastal habitat and broadening their understanding of potential oil spill impacts to the environment.

Deep-C hosted nine students as part of their Internship program for the summer 2014 semester. Students were matched with GoMRI researchers at a variety of institutions around the Gulf, based on their research interests. Read all about the interns’ experiences in their posts on the Deep-C blog, Voices from the Field.
