Lecture Series

The Summer Lecture Series provides our Summer Student Fellows, entering Joint Program Students and other summer students with a popular and useful introduction to the breadth of oceanographic research at WHOI. The speakers are asked to gear their talks to a college Junior/Senior level, and we ask speakers to remember that many in their audience will have had little or no previous oceanography course work. Speakers are encouraged to make their talks as interactive as possible in order to motivate students to participate and ask questions.

"I really appreciated the Summer Lecture Series--I think that one of the best parts of the SSF program is that you become exposed to all different areas of Oceanography, and the lecture series was one of the primary methods for doing so! I feel like I learned so much, and it really broadened my horizons." SSF '11
