In the Downeast Institute’s Coastal Science Academy, teachers and educators from Washington County will learn various methods to engage their students in marine science projects that preserve natural marine and coastal resources. Teachers will learn how to set up a research project using scientific inquiry to solve a problem in their community. Students will learn to address community concern through data collection and analysis. Further, they will outline a solution, and take actions to achieve a solution while working with others. Sea Grant funds are supporting planning and development of this professional development program for Maine educators.

Sea Grant funds $3,500
