ED34A:
Engaging Students Globally in Marine Science Research and Conservation II Posters

Session ID#: 85858

Session Description:
Ocean and coastal conservation is required to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030.  The role of youth, youth organizations, teachers, and educational institutions are major resources for marine conservation at local, regional, and global scales.

Most marine scientists, grant-making agencies, environmental science organizations, and ocean research foundations incorporate education and outreach as a formal component of their work. There seems to be no shortage of stand-alone video content, student competitions, teacher experiential activities, live-link opportunities between students and scientists, and available curricula.

This session invites researchers, marine science education and outreach professionals, teachers, and young professionals to share innovative ideas and technologies used to engage students worldwide and to create inspiring professional development opportunities for teachers. Enlightening stories on challenges and failed efforts are equally important as we look to building lasting educational programming around cutting-edge marine science and ocean conservation.
