2014 Honors Research Program Recap

Each year the Honors Research Program (HRP) brings a small group of honors-level high school students to the University of Rhode Island’s Graduate School of Oceanography (GSO) for three weeks during the summer, then on board E/V Nautilus for a week during a science cruise. On shore HRP students work with scientists and engineers to learn about oceanography, marine geology, marine biology, acoustics, data visualization techniques, and the scientific research process. After completing a research project based on Nautilus-collected data, HRP students participate in a sea-going expedition, standing watch as Data Loggers right alongside scientists and engineers.
