TIDE Description and Curriculum

While TIDE Campers will work hard and learn a lot, students will also have lots of fun during this two week residential camp! In addition to scientific, academic activities, we have picnics, movies, quiz night, beach visits and a volleyball competition.

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION (2014)

Students selected for the TIDE Program will come to the University of Delaware for two weeks from Sunday, July 20 (noon) through Friday, August 1 (closing ceremony at 5pm).

Attendees will gain exposure to two of the UD campuses, spending one week in Newark and one in Lewes. They will stay on campus from Sunday Noon to Friday afternoon, and interact with program faculty and staff in traditional classroom settings, in modern laboratory facilities, in the residence halls and on the beach.

The TIDE Program is an academic learning experience and participants are expected to participate fully in classroom experience and perform the work required outside the class too. Students will have the opportunity to visit the College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment research vessels and laboratories, collect samples in the Delaware Bay, design and run experiments, and present projects.
