The STEAMpunk Ocean program enriches youths’ experience and knowledge of marine conservation and STEAM through youth-directed projects and inquiry, career explorations and collaborative expert partnerships.
The STEAMpunk Ocean program is designed to introduce youth between the ages of 10 and 18 to a multitude of activities that integrate Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics, Science with SCUBA and develop youth leadership skills in conservation. Each session, students will complete a capstone experience where they will have an opportunity to utilize the knowledge, skills, and abilities, and display appropriate dispositions consistent with being advocates of conservation.
Each session, we offer scuba clinics, diving classes, and STEAM workshops. Divers will develop their diving and science skills leading to research field trip. We also plan local community projects, including environmental cleanup events, ocean engineering challenges, and other projects our members are interested in leading.
All session will be scheduled on Wednesday Nights from 7:00 - 8:30 PM
