Call for abstracts that explore ocean exploration outreach in all formats. Deadline: 31 July 2019
Submit your abstract on the AGU Fall Meeting 2019 website »
Educators, filmmakers and scientists – submit your films, commentaries, or wisdom on best practices and lessons learned in educating and informing the public about scientific discovery.
As the scientific drilling program marked 50 years of operation, it also shared milestones with other research programs. In so doing, it is critical to examine long histories of sharing cutting edge science with the public. The program has a growing component of public outreach — including museum displays, video series, artists and educators at sea, educator workshops and social media – many utilized by similar exploration programs. What are the responsibilities, as federally funded science programs, for education and outreach? What has been successful? How do we define success? This session invites abstracts that explore ocean exploration outreach in all formats, including films, photography, artwork, online interactives, posters, curriculum and discussion of means, methods and responsibilities of scientific outreach. This session invites educators, filmmakers and scientists to submit their films, commentaries, or wisdom on best practices and lessons learned in educating and informing the public about scientific discovery.
