We are on the cusp of summer here in the Pacific Northwest, and OIP is ramping up for a big busy summer 2014 cruise season. To start it off, we are having our annual volunteer instructor training cruise on Sunday, June 1st. OIP volunteers are often oceanography, fisheries, or marine affairs grad students at the University of Washington, but anyone with a marine science background, an interest in inquiry-based education, and a love of boat-based science is welcome.
In addition to the training cruise, we have a number of cruises in the works for the rest of the summer. Stay tuned!
