Beam Reach offers undergraduates a rare opportunity to carry out an independent research project in the fields of marine science and sustainability.  Please share this information with colleagues, department listserves, students, and anyone else you think might be interested.  Thanks for your help in spreading the word.

Students- this is your chance to follow your own curiosities about the marine environment and sustainability through an independent research project.

During a 10- week experience, you will design a research project at the Friday Harbor Labs and implement it at sea, learning from instructors and guest experts about the marine environment, endangered killer whales, practicing science sustainably, and living sustainably.

There is still time to apply for the Spring or Fall 07 program

We encourage non-science and science majors alike to apply.  We do not have specific academic requirements.  However, you must have the academic maturity of an advanced undergraduate.  We accept undergraduates, recent graduates, and post-baccalaureates.

What you can get by studying with Beam Reach that you can't get on campus:
- two instructors for a maximum of 12 students
- earn 18 science credits from the University of Washington outside the traditional classroom
- learn to sail while exploring the San Juan Islands
- the opportunity to pursue your interests in sustainability, the marine environment, and killer whales through the entire scientific process, from initial proposal to final presentation
- the opportunity to work with a group of peers to create and implement positive solutions to marine environmental problems
