The Center for Science and Leadership (HICSL) is a scientific and education community on Hurricane Island that provides experiential, hands-on education programs and research opportunities focusing on marine sciences, STEAM education, human ecology, sustainable living technology, citizen science initiatives, and leadership in environmental stewardship for all ages from middle school to adults. Our goal is to excite people about doing science and about being leaders in the next wave of scientific discovery and environmental conservation. During much of the year, these programs take place on Hurricane Island–one of the most unique and beautiful settings on the Atlantic coast. In the off-season, our staff works with teachers and students to support, enhance, and develop experiential, project-based science and leadership education within the classroom.
