THE NEXT GENERATION OF OCEAN STEWARDS
While supporting the educational and environmental initiatives of NOAA, MIT Sea Grant strives to meet the needs of local communities, the Navy, maritime, shipping, and other technology-driven industries. MIT Sea Grant promotes and develops innovative, hands-on educational programs in marine ecology, ocean engineering, underwater robotics, and other STEM topics. Our offerings include K-12 classroom programs and summer programs for high school and college students.
We engage with local educators, community leaders, and student groups to improve marine science education through tools, workshops, curriculum advancement, and professional development. We also conduct public outreach activities that bring the latest science and technology out of the laboratory and into the hands of students, professionals, and the general public.
