¡Youth and the Ocean! (Geosciences Education)

¡Youth and the Ocean!: Teaming High School and Graduate Students Together for Coastal Investigations built upon a previous NSF-funded grant program. This program, in a partnership with University of California, Santa Cruz, provided ocean sciences research opportunities to underrepresented high school students, as well as training and practice in mentoring for geosciences graduate students. The program also sought to develop and field test an effective geosciences education model for university marine science laboratories. If you are interested in implementing a similar program at your marine laboratory, an implementation handbook is available on request. Please contact us

¡Youth and the Ocean! was funded by the National Science Foundation Geosciences Education Division, Award # 1035056
