Girls in Ocean Science and Engineering Institute

Sink or Swim

Sixth-graders from Morse Pond Middle School in Falmouth, Mass., test a remotely operated vehicle they built in a test tank in WHOI's Smith Laboratory. It was part of a summer educational program led by WHOI scientist Anna Michel called the Girls in Ocean Engineering and Science (GOES) Institute. With funding from a CAREER grant from the National Science Foundation, Michel brings middle school girls to WHOI each summer to spend a week exploring ocean science and engineering. The program helps promote diversity in the field of engineering and helps educate and inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers.
