Sea Education Association (www.sea.edu) is providing summer academic programs for high school students where students live on SEA’s Woods Hole campus, study oceanography, nautical science and maritime studies, and then sail and do oceanographic research. Students experience a rigorous schedule of lecture, labs and field activities like piloting and a trip to the salt marsh while on shore. House Leader positions are open for the onshore Science at Sea course with preference to those who commit to participate in both SAS I (July 20-Aug 4) and SAS II (Aug 2-14) programs. Duties include resident assistant type roles like facilitating wake-ups, cooking, student support and inspiration as well as teaching assistant responsibilities like attending lecture, co-leading labs, classroom preparation and student homework support. Experience and/or interest working as a team and building a supportive community is important.
