About This Organizer

The Marine Science Institute was founded in 1970, around the time that the issue of water resources was becoming a major concern for many Bay Area inhabitants. The Institute's philosophy was founded on the idea that putting students in direct physical contact with their local bay environment will help cultivate their natural sense of curiosity while enriching their understanding of science and fostering a responsibility to protect their environment.

 

Marine Science Institute’s mission is to inspire respect and stewardship for the marine environment through experiential learning. We are dedicated to providing fun, safe, and exciting learning opportunities for budding biologists of all ages.
