MARE Centers

The MARE program is administered throughout the USA and Mexico by five regional MARE Centers:

Each Center has received training and support from MARE at the Lawrence Hall of Science. These Centers remain closely affiliated with the MARE program, and provide professional development to teachers in their respective communities.

A MARE Center is ideally located at a college/university, a marine biological laboratory, or an aquarium, museum or other informal science center. Each MARE center is staffed by MARE Associates (MARE Leaders who have assumed roles beyond their individual schools or institutions) who implement their own MARE professional development workshops and Summer Leadership Institutes.
