STEM EDUCATION FOR MARINE FUTURES
MIT Sea Grant works to support and advance marine academics at the Institute, local, and state level. In addition to teaching courses at MIT, we develop K-12 programs for educators and students to introduce engineering design principles, physics, and coastal, biological and marine sciences. We have a strong commitment supporting students and interns, as well as volunteer monitoring groups, and citizen science programs.
MIT Sea Grant hosts the regional competition of the National Ocean Science Bowl and develops programs to reach underserved and minority communities in the areas of STEM and public policy. The Sea Perch program introduces students to biological science, engineering design, and physics through building remotely operated vehicles. We also provide training workshops on environmental topics and technologies to support future environmental and technical workforce needs.
