Education and Outreach Officers Program

The central goals of the Education and Outreach Officers Program include the following:

  • Providing teachers with an opportunity to participate in seagoing research experiences aboard the JOIDES Resolution, working side-by-side with scientists, using current state-of-the-art approaches to solve scientific problems of global interest, and gaining first-hand knowledge of the results of seagoing science expeditions.
  • Translating scientific results into useful teaching resources, such as classroom curriculum materials.
  • Disseminating these resources into classrooms across the country.
