Welcome to MarineQuest!
MarineQuest is the official marine science outreach program for the University of North Carolina Wilmington, Watson College of Education, and the Center for Marine Science providing young people with opportunities to explore, discover and value our marine habitats. Whether you experience MarineQuest as a summer camper exploring the ocean or as a student on a school field trip discovering the marsh, the outcome is the same: MarineQuest is more than just another day at the beach; MarineQuest is making waves in environmental education!
You spoke and we listened!
MarineQuest has heard your comments and we are working on a new system that will simplify the registration process making it easier for you to enter your information and update it across multiple years.
We are excited about our 2014 summer programs, and looking forward to the opportunity to share another hands-on feet-wet summer of marine science adventures with you! We would like to thank you for your patience while we are in development of our new registration system. During this time, we want to provide you and your child the opportunity to begin the application process. The pre-application process is open for our programs that require an application and acceptance.
Below you will find a link that will take you to our pre-application webpage which will provide you the opportunity to begin the process of pre-application while we work to finalize our transition.
