Be a STEM Speaker for a 5th Grade Trip to Ocean Discovery Institute!

Be a STEM Speaker for a 5th Grade Trip to Ocean Discovery Institute!

As a professional in a Science, Technology, Engineering, or Mathematics (STEM) field you can help create the scientists of tomorrow! We are looking for a handful of dedicated individuals from the molecular biology and engineering fields to expose our students to opportunities in the STEM fields. The time you commit to this program can open doors for underrepresented students to pursue opportunities they never knew existed before!


One Ocean Discovery Institute Field Trip (with the potential to do more than one)

Each year Ocean Discovery Institute hosts over 800 5th grade students at our lab in Pacific Beach. Guest speakers talk with students for 15 minutes about their path to career and then work with the students on a more personal level in small pre-designed group activities.

Dates: October 29th – November 30th and December 10th (Monday-Friday, except Wednesdays)
Time: 9:15AM-11:30AM
Location: Ocean Discovery Institute Lab, Pacific Beach, CA

If you are interested, please contact us for more details!
