Gibraltar Island Stone Lab, The Ohio State University’s island campus on Lake Erie, is now accepting applications from Ohio State students for 2022 summer classes. Located on Gibraltar Island near Put-in-Bay, the lab offers introductory and upper-level college classes on topics ranging from algae identification to zoology.

Classes are hands-on, with daily field trips and laboratory sessions that make Lake Erie science directly accessible to students. Classes start as early as May 17 and run into the fall. A full list of courses and professional development workshops, which range from one day to six weeks in length, is available online at go.osu.edu/SLcourses.

Emily Esplandiu, an Ohio State biology major, has attended Stone Lab classes for the past two summers. “I was taking classes that were actually fun and not just sitting in a lecture of 300 people,” she said. “It’s easier to engage and I feel like I will be more likely to talk and ask questions back on campus. It was one of the best times I’ve ever had. I already miss it!”

Stone Lab applications are now open at go.osu.edu/sciencerequires. The deadline to apply for a scholarship is March 15, but applications will be accepted until May 20.

Located on the 6.5-acre Gibraltar Island in Put-in-Bay harbor, Stone Laboratory is Ohio State’s island campus on Lake Erie and the research, education, and outreach facility of the Ohio Sea Grant College Program. The Ohio Sea Grant College Program is part of The Ohio State University’s College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences and NOAA Sea Grant, a network of 34 Sea Grant programs dedicated to the protection and sustainable use of marine and Great Lakes resources.
