The Khaled bin Sultan Living Oceans Foundation has formed several education partnerships to bring the Coral Reef Ecology Curriculum to teachers and students around the world.

Black Girls Dive Foundation

Black Girls Dive Foundation is a Maryland non-profit organization that seeks to inspire and empower young girls and women to engage in aquatic-based STEM and recreation activities. Through their STREAMS program that integrates Science, Technology, Robotics, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics with SCUBA and scientific diving, girls explore diverse marine ecosystems and learn about coral reef ecology and ocean science and how to become stewards of the environment.

The Khaled bin Sultan Living Oceans Foundation collaborates with Black Girls Dive Foundation to ensure that girls have access to a breadth of innovative educational materials and activities from their Coral Reef Ecology Curriculum.

 

 

 

Discovery Bay Marine Lab Logo - education partners 

Discovery Bay Marine Laboratory

The University of the West Indies Discovery Bay Marine Laboratory in Jamaica, engages in research, training, and outreach in Caribbean Marine Sciences using research and exploration to aid in the management of marine and coastal zone processes. As a part of their mission, they host school groups and work with community NGOs to strengthen awareness of coastal environment issues and interest students in careers in marine science.

The Khaled bin Sultan Living Oceans Foundation and the Discovery Bay Marine Lab provide mangrove and coral reef education to students in Jamaica. Jointly, we implement a year-long, experiential education program called the Jamaica Awareness of Mangroves in Nature (J.A.M.I.N.) to educate high school students in Jamaica about the importance of their mangrove ecosystem. When education staff from Discovery Bay Marine Laboratory teach local Jamaican students and teachers about coral reefs as part of their Visiting Schools Program, they augment their program by using and disseminating materials from the Khaled bin Sultan Living Oceans Foundation’s Coral Reef Ecology Curriculum.

Mission Blue is a non-profit organization whose mission is to inspire action to explore and protect the ocean. They seek to protect at least 30% of the ocean by the year 2030. At the heart of this effort is a global campaign to ignite public support for the protection of Hope Spots—special places that are vital to the health of the ocean, the blue heart of our planet.

Mission Blue and the Khaled bin Sultan Living Oceans Foundation have partnered on a campaign to increase public awareness of ocean issues using Khaled bin Sultan Living Oceans Foundation’s Coral Reef Ecology Curriculum through traditional and social media.

The Khaled bin Sultan Living Oceans Foundation works with the National Aquarium to provide credited professional development workshops to teachers in the greater Maryland area. Together, we are helping build teachers’ understanding of coral habitats in ocean science. During the workshop, we engage teachers in a set of classroom-ready activities from the Coral Reef Ecology Curriculum that are tied to the Next Generation Science Standards, Common Core State Standards, and Ocean Literacy Essential Principles.
