Reaching Out to Tomorrow's Scientists Today
The future of science is in the hands of our youngest studentsâ€”those in elementary, middle and high schools. Rosenstiel School has a variety of programs in place to excite and educate both the educators and the students about marine and atmospheric science.
Rosenstiel School, in partnership with the Miami Museum of Science and Miami-Dade county public schools, annually hosts a summer program as part of the Integrated Marine Program and College Training (IMPACT) where low-income, first-generation college-bound students are paid stipends as they study oceanography, biology, ecology, meteorology, geology, and resource management in a hands-on, interactive environment for six weeks.
With Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institution, the school annually hosts the National Ocean Sciences Bowl (NOSB) Florida Regional Competition— “Jeopardy”-like competition to test students’ knowledge of math and science. For information on the Manatee Bowl, click here.
Women In Science
Additionally the Rosenstiel School has partnered with the American Association of University Women and Miami-Dade county public schools annually to host a day of interactive learning for 6th and 7th grade girls. The 2015 Exploring Marine Science Day will be November 14th. Space is limited.
Environmental Immersion Day
Another partner is Fairchild Tropical Botanical Garden, which co-hosts Environmental Immersion Day. Fairchild awards scholarships for students to participate in this days as part of the Fairchild Challenge for High Schools, an environmental education/outreach competition. Student groups visit the Rosenstiel School and other environmental sites for a day of comprehensive, hands-on learning.
The Rosenstiel School participates in community events such as career and environmental fairs, beach clean-ups and fishing tournaments to promote education and environmental and marine conservation.
