Undergraduate & Graduate Programs
Grades 9 – 12
The HIMB Education Program works primarily with high school level students and classes. Our mission is to recruit the next generation of Hawai‘i’s ocean scientists, managers, and stewards to protect and conserve the marine resources of our islands. To this aim, HIMB offers innovative education programming including inquiry based fieldtrips to Moku o Lo‘e, summer training courses, research lab internships, and a telepresence technology program to explore the coral reef habitats of Kāne‘ohe Bay. Most of our educational programs are taught in the Marine Science Research Learning Center, an indoor-outdoor lab/classroom facility fully equipped with digital microscopes, laptops and integrated A/V system.
High School students that wish to have a broader overview of the Hawaii Institute of Marine Biology can sign up for a guided tour of the facility; select the Plankton/Invasive Seaweed Lab combo with a mini-tour, or schedule a Marine Science Overnight.
