Applications Open Now for Educators to Sail on E/V Nautilus in 2019

Teachers, artists, and informal educators!

Apply now to explore the Eastern Pacific Ocean with Dr. Robert Ballard’s Corps of Exploration as a Science Communication Fellow! This team of explorers conducts cutting-edge scientific exploration of parts of the global ocean never seen before using remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) and multibeam mapping technology. Fellows will spend 1-3 weeks at sea between April - September 2019 in the Pacific Ocean.

The Science Communication Fellowship invites K-20 and informal educators for a professional development experience aboard Exploration Vessel Nautilus as science interpreters among a team of STEM professionals. Participants will gain exposure to and experience in the applications of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) in the field of ocean exploration. Fellows will collaborate with a cohort from across North America, explore side-by-side with scientists and engineers, and share the adventure with their students, community, and the world as the expedition is broadcast live on
What Science Communication Fellows are saying:
“I've always thought the best teachers were those who experience things and then bring it back to help their students have their own experiences. I also can't understate the energizing effect of having OET invest in me this way; it just feels empowering."

Many of the students I work with are first-generation college students, and think I can stand as an example to them of what is possible when you stick with it and go for outstanding opportunities".

Applications for the Science Communication Fellowship are due by December 14, 2018. The application packet includes full program details:

Paid student internships are also available for undergraduate, graduate and recent graduates in the fields of ocean science, seafloor mapping, ROV (remotely operated vehicle) engineering, and video engineering.
