More than two dozen middle school and high school students from Sarasota and Manatee counties are learning science skills, from building and programming submersible robots to collecting and examining marine life and even learning scuba diving, from June 9 to June 21 at New College of Florida. The students are attending PUSH/SUCCESS, marking its 11th year as a summer program at New College. Students will work in the “wet lab” of the College’s Pritzker Marine Biology Research Center, learning valuable lab skills and developing an understanding of how their health is affected by the health of the coastal environment.
