1999 Projects: Education and outreach
MBARI/Monterey Bay Aquarium Joint Projects
Project lead/manager: George
With its strong educational component, this project directly relates to MBARIs mission "to achieve and maintain a position as a world center for advanced research and education in ocean science and technology." This project likewise furthers the mission of the Monterey Bay Aquarium, MBARIs sister institution, and makes best use of the resources of both organizations.
More than 50 project tasks for 1999 fall into the categories of technology transfer, research, educational programs and products, exhibits, and public relations efforts. Highlights will include support activities for the upcoming deep-sea exhibit and revamped Monterey Bay Aquarium interpretive program, "Deep in Monterey Bay;" involvement in the Sustainable Seas Expedition project; teachers workshops; the continuing summer internship programs; and Future of the Oceans (FOTO) educational curriculum development.
