Campers & counselors for USF's Oceanography Camp for Girls at Sea World
USF Summer Camps Part 1
Learning science is literally a day at the beach for students in USF’s Oceanography Camp for Girls, which has been exposing young women to the marine sciences for over twenty years. In the first of a special series on summer camps around the University of South Florida, University Beat on WUSF-TV follows this year’s group from their St. Petersburg classrooms and laboratories to field trips to Caladesi Island and Sea World as they learn and have fun at the same time.

Education plus learning equals a summer to remember: that’s the equation USF is providing Bay area middle and high school students at summer camps across the university’s campuses. University Beat is going to some of those camps to meet some of the students and camp organizers. This week’s report on WUSF 89.7 FM brings you to St. Petersburg, where girls are learning about marine science and the world that surrounds them.
