ABOUT TIDE CAMP
The Summer TIDE Program is a 13-day instructional camp for high school students. This summer program focuses on the atmospheric, oceanic, and biogeochemical processes at work in the Delaware Bay. Camp academic activities include classroom instruction, discussions, lectures and visits to modern oceanographic/atmospheric laboratories, as well as field excursions to the Delaware Bay for sampling and exploration. Students will spend time at the College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment's campuses in Newark and Lewes, Delaware.
Students must have completed at least one year of high school and not yet graduated prior to the camp. Those entering 9th grade or recent graduates are not eligible for TIDE Camp.
Students will gain an understanding of sea breeze, tides, habitat loss, species adaptation, salt-water marsh filtration, sediment transport, regional/local climate change, mitigation/adaptation opportunities, local impacts and strategies, and alternative energy. Information about UD program offerings will also be included. The program is administered by the College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment which facilitates interdisciplinary research, undergraduate and graduate education, and outreach in earth, ocean and environmental systems.
The 2016 TIDE Camp program will run from July 31 through August 12. The priority application deadline is on March 20, 2016.
