GSO Education and Outreach Community Meeting

These past few months have really opened up the conversation about education and outreach. The need for virtual opportunities has grown tremendously as schools shifted to distance learning, and the Black Lives Matter movement has amplified the ngeed for GSO to more inclusively engage with underrepresented K-12 students in ocean science.

The Office of Marine Programs (OMP) continues its efforts to communicate ocean topics to a wide variety of audiences, but to specifically address emerging outreach needs we would like to introduce the new Ocean Classroom program to the GSO community. 

You are invited to join the OMP team on Thursday, July 30th at 10 a.m. to learn more about our work and how you can be involved in outreach and education programs, with a particular focus on Ocean Classroom.

We know many of you already participate in education and outreach efforts or would like to. It would be great to know in what capacity, so we compiled this short survey to gather that information.

Thanks in advance for contributing by completing the survey.…/1FAIpQLSfn3w9FmPFbVJeBlK…/viewform

Expanding the reach of GSO research and initiatives is important, and we look forward to discussing this with you on the 30th!
