Sea Grant Education
Sea Grant educators provide valuable leadership in marine and aquatic science education activities throughout the nation, playing a leading role in K‐12, undergraduate, graduate, professional, technical and public education in coastal communities. Education programs are designed to inform citizens in coastal and Great Lakes communities and help prepare the next generation of professionals involved with our nation’s coastal resources, communities and economies. Sea Grant’s education portfolio includes undergraduate and graduate education, teacher education, K-12 curriculum development and programs, fellowships, informal education for the general public, special training programs for industry and much more. Educators work closely with universities, the NOAA Office of Education, the National Marine Educators Association and other partners to develop formal education programs, workforce training and professional education programs.
