Catalina Island Marine Institute
Eighth Grade to Catalina Island Marine Institue
JCS San Diego Academy of Art and Science Eighth Graders will be spending three days at the Catalina Island Marine Institute in May. Located two and a half miles by water from the city of Avalon, Toyon Bay is an ideal site for outdoor STEM education.
CIMI at Tonyon Bay has state-of-the-art laboratories, classrooms, aquariums, display areas, and recreational facilities that are well integrated with the natural beauty of Catalina Island’s land and sea environments, providing an exciting outdoor education experience. During the three day program, the students will enjoy a variety of hands-on labs and field activities in Marine Science and Island Ecology.
JCS San Diego Academy is a STEAM based program, and CIMI is the perfect compliment. We would like to make this an ongoing opportunity for future 8th grades, and so we're asking for your support to get this off the ground this first year.
