Ocean-related education is a vital component in preparing all students for Ocean STEM fields and our emphasis is on building a talented, diverse and inclusive workforce. Project Blue is AltaSea’s Ocean STEM program that includes a wide variety of learning resources and internship opportunities. The Project Blue Virtual Research Mentorship Program for high school students will focus on Sustainable Aquaculture and Ocean Energy solutions. Upon completion, students will receive 10 volunteer hours of service to help them achieve an optimal college application packet.

The students will be expected to develop a research project analyzing a mutually agreed upon Ocean STEM topic. They will work closely with an AltaSea staff member and with dedicated scientific mentors over the duration. Students will fulfill the program by writing a scientific research paper representing their evaluation of the chosen topic. This paper will be published on AltaSea’s Project Blue education website https://altasea-project-blue.org/ and will be made available as a research resource for other students interested in marine science.
