Abstract : During the summer of 1987 socially and economically disadvantaged students from the inner city high schools of Miami, Florida were placed in laboratory positions at three oceanographic institutions on Virginia Key, Miami, Florida. Students received direct supervision from faculty members at the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science (RSMAS) and from staff scientists at the Atlantic Oceanographic Marine Laboratory (AOML) and the Southeast Fisheries Center (SEFC). This program provided these students an opportunity to work in a scientific environment and to appraise career opportunities in oceanographic science. Keywords: Student interns; Oceanographic laboratories.
