Are you an educator interested in gaining first-hand research experience on an ocean research ship? Explore the opportunities offered by the National Ocean and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) Teacher at Sea program.
The mission of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) Teacher at Sea program is to give teachers a clearer insight into our ocean planet, a greater understanding of maritime work and studies, and to increase the environmental literacy by fostering an interdisciplinary research experience.
The program provides a unique environment for learning and teaching by sending kindergarten through college-level teachers to work under the tutelage of scientists and crew at sea aboard NOAA research and survey ships. Then, armed with new understanding and experience, teachers bring this knowledge back to their classrooms. Participants can expect to be at sea anywhere from one week to one month, with the average cruise lasting 12-14 days.
All necessary travel costs are paid for by the NOAA Teacher at Sea Program. While airfare is paid for up front by the government, all other costs are reimbursed, including transportation costs, hotel costs, and per diem allowance.
