Ohio Sea Grant Education
Ohio Sea Grant is well known for the development of outstanding curriculum materials for grades 4-12, for the training of science teachers, and for research contributions to the education profession.
At Stone Laboratory, Ohio Sea Grant has developed courses specifically for teachers and high school students. Our efforts in these areas must continue and expand as Ohio K-12 students strive to improve performance on science proficiency tests.

The aquatic sciences are very interesting to students and the public. While our workshop program at Stone Laboratory has grown by 500% in the last 15 years, we are still reaching a very small portion of Ohio students. Therefore, in the next five years, we must take advantage of new opportunities in communication technology to take the aquatic sciences and our Sea Grant educational materials to the students and the public in their schools and homes. To this end, with the help of a USEPA grant, we are now equipped with the technology to conduct distance learning sessions and have broadcast some lessons to several high school classes.
