Marine Science Outreach

Outreach to Local Schools and Teaching Experiences

SSU Marine Science students reinforce their scientific knowledge by teaching younger students. Marine science students in recent years have graduated with teaching experience through outreach incorporated within their course requirements.  Graduate and Undergraduate students are trained in science communication through our outreach activities with community partners. Please contact  for more ways to support or schedule outreach with the Marine and Environmental Science Department. 

Interested in volunteering: Please visit the online outreach calendar to sign up to assist us at events in our community. 

Several undergraduate and graduate students are hired each year to serve as camp instructors in the month-long NOAA LMRCSC Ocean Literacy summer camp for Savannah children.

SSU Marine Science has partnered with Student Collaborating to Undertake Tracking Efforts for Sturgeon (SCUTES). This NOAA Fisheries outreach program is designed to teach students about conservation efforts surround the Atlantic and Shortnose Sturgeon. Classroom instructional kits for elementary-high school are available for checkout through the SSU Marine Science program by emailing 

More information about the SCUTES program can be found at the SCUTES website.

I'm not a student at SSU yet, but I'd like to get involved. What can I do?
