Resources for Marine Educators
The principal efforts of the Florida Sea Grant College Program address statewide coastal research, extension/outreach and communications. All of this work can have a bearing on the work of marine educators, notably by providing science-based information about Florida coastal and ocean resources and systems. Although Florida Sea Grant does not have the funds to support a formal program in traditional marine education, we aim to assist educators and students in locating the best and most reliable information. Our county extension faculty provide occasional workshops on various marine topics to educators in their area. Learn more about the entire marine education program at Florida Sea Grant.
Below, we have identified some resources for teachers, youth program leaders, children, college students, citizens and the media interested in learning more about Florida, national and global marine subjects. (Printer-friendly version)
