CIMI at Fox Landing provides a unique and exciting environment full of programs that are the perfect way to enhance any student’s education. We believe that the only way for students to truly internalize a subject is for them to use their hands while learning and experience the science for themselves.

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 will have the opportunity to gain first-hand experience of the diverse Southern California flora and fauna found in the ocean that surrounds Catalina Island. We are confident that students will leave our program academically enriched and driven to learn more about ecology and conservation in an attempt to strengthen their own contributions to the world around them.
