Teacher at Sea Travel Program for Science Teachers

The Coral Reef Educator on the Water (CREW) program offered science teachers the opportunity to join the Global Reef Expedition (GRE). Each participant traveled to join the research vessel, the M/Y Golden Shadow, as a teacher at sea during the Expedition. The CREW program was designed to give science educators first-hand experience of life on board a working scientific research vessel, a greater understanding of the importance of coral reefs, and inspiration to convey what they have learned to their students and members of their community through science lesson plans and other education resources.


Now that the field research for the Global Reef Expedition is complete, we are no longer accepting CREW applications.
