NOAA Science Camp in its 9th Year

July 18, 2011

PMEL and University of Washington scientists will help campers turn into oceanographers at the 9th annual NOAA Science Camp in Seattle, Washington the weeks of July 18th and 25th.  Middle school campers will get to experience what it is like to be an oceanographer by using instruments to measure physical properties of the water and atmosphere as well as getting the chance to see a working buoy in the water and learn how PMEL uses buoys to gather data around the world.

NOAA Science Camp is sponsored by Washington Sea Grant.  Check out their web page for a video and more information.
