Educator Programs on Marine Sciences

We discovered two interesting opportunities for teachers that we wanted to pass along.

Coral Reef Educator on the Water Program

EPIThe Living Oceans Foundation is currently soliciting applications from high school teachers wanting to spend two weeks conducting educational activities and program development during its mission to French Polynesia. The Coral Reef Educator on the Water (CREW) program offers high school teachers the opportunity to join the Global Reef Expedition (GRE). The CREW program is designed to give first-hand experience of life on board a working scientific research vessel, a greater understanding of the importance of coral reefs, and inspiration to convey what they have learned to their students and members of their community.

Applications are due August 17, 2012.

Marine Education Fellowship

EPIEcology Project International (EPI) is accepting applications from classroom teachers and school administrators interested in attending an 8-day program at EPI’s field site in La Paz, Baja California Sur. While in Baja, participants will be based on Espiritu Santo Island, a UNESCO-protected biosphere reserve and take part in modules of the Island Ecology Program, a hands-on field ecology course offered to Mexican and U.S. student groups each spring. Participants will learn about this unique, extreme ecosystem.

Applications are due September 1, 2012.

**NOTE: These are not Academy sponsored programs. Please direct all questions and requests for more information directly to gonzalez@livingoceansfoundation.org for the CREW program or john@ecologyproject.org for the EPI program.**
