San Jacinto College introduces high school students to the maritime industry


PASADENA, Texas — San Jacinto College (SJC) held its first series of maritime camps this summer at each campus location. Participants, ages 14 and older, spent half a week learning about the various careers within the maritime industry through tours of the Texas A&M ship and Houston Ship Channel, navigation exercises, cargo handling and simulations. They also met with captains, mates, tankermen, pilots, able seamen, and other mariners.
