CIMI at Cherry Cove provides a unique and exciting program environment that’s the perfect way to enhance any student’s education.

By focusing on hands-on experiential science, and utilizing our state of the art labs and equipment, we strive to increase science literacy.  Our expert instructors use the natural land and sea environments of beautiful Catalina Island to stimulate minds, and most importantly, to create excitement about science.

During our three or five day programs, students and teachers have the opportunity to gain first-hand experience of the diverse flora and fauna found in Southern California’s ocean that surround Catalina Island.

Through a combination of labs, aquariums, and touch tanks on land; and by snorkeling, kayaking and data collection in the field; students and teachers  learn about the many ecosystems of the island and get to interact with many of the island’s various inhabitants.
