Some scientists focus on developing curriculum directly with formal educators:

 Rich Batiuk, USEPA's Associate Director for Science

Working closely with government offices and coastal resource managers is an outgrowth of their research for some scientists:

While most scientists also teach, some choose to collaborate more closely with their students in a variety of outreach projects:

Students – High School
 Student doing lab work

High school students enjoy working with ocean scientists in their labs and at their field sites by participating in these projects.

Students – Elementary

Web-based projects offer a wide variety of audiences the opportunity to learn about ocean science:

Citizen Scientists
 Students at sea

Working with ocean scientists gives citizens the opportunity to participate in real research:
