Coastal Ocean Science Academy at Northeastern

August 9-12, 2010
The COSA program provides high school students with an unforgettable two-week introduction to marine science.  The Academy is held at the Northeastern University Marine Science Center, a world-class research and teaching institution on the rocky shores of Nahant, MA. Participants will build knowledge of coastal and marine biology, including ecological and physical characteristics of several habitats.  They will develop skills such as monitoring water quality, measuring species richness and diversity, identifying marine organisms, and exploring threats facing our coastal and marine resources.  Off-site field experiences have included a whale watch, a visit to the New England Aquarium, and a trip to the Boston Harbor Islands.  This year’s COSA program will run from Monday, August 9 through Saturday, August 21.  To learn more about the COSA program, application, fees, scholarships, and more, please contact Carole McCauley, Outreach Program Coordinator at the Marine Science Center: (781) 581-7370 x321 or c.mccauley@neu.edu.
