Through the education department, LUMCON strives to: inform visitors of current research activities of LUMCON scientists, promote awareness of marine and coastal environments and their connection to land, and clarify the scientific process and its role in making environmental decisions.
At LUMCON, students become scientists. Through field and laboratory activities, students develop lasting impressions about making a positive impact on their environment and community. Overnight or day trips are designed to meet the needs of K-12 school classes, K-12 school organizations, home schools and scouting organizations. Individual students entering grades 9-12 in the fall can apply to participate in one-week residental summer camps.
