What college student wouldn't want to spend part of their summer vacation in idyllic Bermuda? For the fifteen members of this year's Princeton University (PU) marine biology class, the time spent at the Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences (BIOS) was more than just a day at the beach. In late May, the sophomore and junior Princeton students arrived at sunny BIOS -- a far cry from the brick and mortar, Ivy League backdrop they’re used to in New Jersey. Here, they get the chance to experience the uniqueness involved with living and working at a scientific research institute.

The third class of POGOnian graduates headed home at the end of May and the year four trainees will arrive at the Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences (BIOS) later this summer. The NF-POGO Centre of Excellence in Ocean Observations (CofE) at BIOS is a 10-month program designed to educate and expand observational oceanography around the world by offering training and experience to scientists from developing countries.

Since 1976, more than 100 young Bermudians have interned at BIOS. These students, some as young as 16, are given the opportunity to work in laboratories and on research projects with some of the best scientists in the field of oceanography.
The Bermuda Program is designed to broaden Bermudian students’ knowledge of the ocean around them and to give them the unique opportunity for hands on experience at a working research station. “We’re basically taking young Bermudian scientists and giving them training and hands on experience that would be hard for them to get elsewhere,” said Tim Noyes, research specialist with BIOS’s Marine Environmental Program (MEP).
