Stone Lab courses available to applicants


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.

Earn credits

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.
