To fulfill our mission, BOEM needs an ocean literate public and highly skilled marine scientists and engineers. Educators are our partners in promoting ocean literacy and encouraging interest in marine science and engineering careers. BOEM is a leading contributor to the growing body of scientific knowledge about the nation’s marine and coastal environment. We share this information with the marine education community and other interested educators through lesson plans, posters, and other material based on BOEM-funded research in support of their efforts to address ocean literacy and build a skilled, diverse marine workforce. The bulk of BOEM material directed at educators is growing and will be added to this page as it is completed.
