Sea Semester at Woods Hole

Science at SEA

Science at SEA (SAS) is a 20-day program for high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors focusing on the coastal and offshore marine environment around Cape Cod, Massachusetts. The program includes a shore component on the SEA campus in Woods Hole, MA, and a sea component aboard one of SEA’s sailing research vessels, the SSV Corwith Cramer. During the shore component, students study the marine environment from a variety of perspectives—scientific, historical, literary, and nautical. This is an academic program complete with written assignments and tests. During the sea component, students study offshore oceanography, nautical science, and act as members of the ships crew. Students are evaluated on achievement and effort. More detailed information on SAS.
