Review for Marine Science Institute, Redwood City, CA, USA
The Marine Science Institute provided my son an amazing summer camp experience! He was excited by the opportunity to participate in the Underwater Investigators session to learn about biomimicry - a perfect topic for his age group - and was fully engaged in the content which was so thoughtfully put together during the week. Each day he shared his excitement around what he'd done and all he'd learned - from canoeing through the local sloughs and interacting with marine life in the MSI aquarium, to an amazing day aboard MSI's research vessel to investigate marine life in the San Francisco Bay. I was so impressed with camp staff - their knowledge about and passion for marine science is truly inspiring. I was equally impressed by camp leadership and found Alex, in particular, to be responsive, always accessible, and a wonderful ambassador for MSI and the summer camp experience. My son enjoyed every minute with MSI and this was by far the most excited and engaged I’ve seen him in any summer camp session. He now considers himself a Marine Biologist in the making and looks forward to staying involved with MSI and its work. My sincere thanks to Alex, Maddie and the rest of the crew for providing such a fantastic and memorable experience !
