Hurricane Island Center for Science and Leadership
The Island’s Center for Science and Leadership, provides experiential, hands-on education programs and research opportunities focused on marine sciences, STEM education, human ecology, sustainable living technology, citizen science initiatives, and leadership in environmental stewardship for all ages from middle school to adults. In 2019, they provided 5,250 student days of education.
Their goal is to excite people about doing science and about being leaders in the next wave of scientific discovery and environmental conservation. Their island campus, powered by solar technology, serves as an educational model demonstrating not only renewable energy, but also sustainable waste, water, and food systems. We help to fund their master plan, sustainability initiatives and most recently Hurricane’s efforts to build a year round research station.
