Outreach Programs

Talking with the public, engaging K-12 students, working with teachers in classrooms, participation in workshops with science journalists, and hosting undergraduate students interested in exploring opportunities in science as a career, are all important aspects of our work.  We engage in a variety of education and outreach activities each year through the CMORE program as through the WHOI Academic Programs Office.  You see videos of our work and can find out more about our pubic outreach activities at the links below.
