Program 1

The OceanQuest field experience is based in Woods Hole, Massachusetts and takes place aboard a fully equipped and Coast Guard certified vessel. The program focuses on basic oceanography where students/passengers use actual research equipment and techniques. Current information is introduced that includes important chemical, physical, meteorological and biological oceanography concepts and how local changes in the ocean, both natural and human induced,impact global systems. Teachers and group leaders are encouraged to request specific tasks for their group before they arrive. Programs are designed for all ages and are adapted appropriately. We are an approved Massachusetts Curriculum Provider.
