PUT-IN-BAY, Ohio — Applications are open for summer courses at Stone Laboratory, Ohio State University’s island campus on Lake Erie.
High school and college students and educators can apply for a wide range of college credit courses covering topics from aquatic biology to zoology.
Stone Laboratory’s hands-on, intensive classes give students the chance to see science in action during field trips and labs.
Students earn two college credits for a one-week class and four credits for a five-week class. Credits are earned through Ohio State and are transferable to most U.S. colleges.
This summer, Ohio State is offering a 25 percent tuition discount on classes, making Stone Lab courses more affordable. Introductory courses are suitable for advanced high school students and those in any major, while upper-level courses let science majors pursue their interests more in-depth.
The lab also offers classes for formal and informal educators, as well as non-credit workshops for the general public and those hoping to develop their skills in fisheries management, water treatment or aquatic invasive species control.

Scholarships are awarded based on both academic merit and financial need and range from $100 to $2,500 per student. In 2016, Stone Lab awarded a total of 54 scholarships worth more than $42,000.
