The educational outreach program that the Marine Microbiology lab has several components. Part of this fulfills the broader impacts component of our NSF Biocomplexity Awards. Every summer we participate in the Oceanography Camp for Girls, taking in two groups of girls and giving them an introduction to Marine Microbiology. Additional activities fall under the Center for Ocean Sciences Education Excellence (COSEE). These include the formulation of hands-on lab activities for High School science classes (to see an example click here). We also participate in the NSF Bridge to the Doctorate program.
