Become a marine scientist for a week!

Take part in the Baltic Sea Science Camp 2010 on board of the sailing ship LOVIS!

Explore how marine scientists trace harmful substances in the sea! Learn how oceanographers can find North Sea waters even in the middle of the Baltic Sea, and design a research strategy for answering open questions in marine science!

Are you interested in science? Do you love the sea? Then get to know what marine science is all about! Experience how it feels to work on the sea in an international team, taking samples and analysing them, and trying to find answers to relevant questions.
