Clean Ocean Action will be hosting its 35th Annual Spring Student Summit at Gateway National Recreation Area, Sandy Hook, on the morning of Wednesday, May 17th and also possibly on the 18th (if there is enough school interest!).
- Clean Ocean Action's Student Summit expands learning beyond the classroom. It is designed to provide middle school students (Grades 5-8) from throughout central and northern New Jersey with an opportunity to experience hands-on, marine environmental education at the Jersey shore. *Eligible counties for participation: Sussex, Warren, Hunterdon, Mercer, Monmouth, Middlesex, Somerset, Union, Essex, Hudson, Bergen, Passaic and Morris.
- The activities included in the Student Summit have been selected to present students with an interdisciplinary marine and environmental education experience that complements the Next Generation Science Standards.
- Schools must apply to Clean Ocean Action for participation in this program and agree to the Terms of Participation.
- Clean Ocean Action's Student Summits (program and materials) are FREE. Schools are responsible for transportation and lunches. To ensure a commitment from a school, a refundable deposit of $100 is required with the 2023 Spring Student Summit Application. The deposit will be returned to the school once their post-Summit evaluations have been submitted.
Interested schools must complete and send the 2023 Spring Student Summit Application and a refundable $100 deposit check to COA by April 7th for consideration.
