Clean Ocean Action

Science Can Be A Day At The Beach


Clean Ocean Action's Student Summit expands learning beyond the classroom.  It is designed to provide middle school students (Grades 5-8) from throughout New Jersey with an opportunity to experience hands-on, marine environmental education at the Jersey shore.




The activities included in the Student Summit have been selected to present students with an interdisciplinary marine and environmental education experience that complements the Next Generation Science Standards.

Schools must apply to Clean Ocean Action for participation in this program and agree to the Terms of Participation.
