Lightning Talks are a fast-paced, lively new format for science communication and outreach. Get a taste from this NMEA 2015 session with 5-minute talks on a wide range of topics by informal education thought leaders from across the country. Topics include: shark outreach, nature play, partnerships, behavior change, youth development, virtual learning, and public science events.
This playlist includes six of the sessions presented at our annual conference by: Jim Wharton (Seattle Aquarium), David Niebuhr (Audubon Nature Institute), E. Howard Rutherford (USF College of Marine Science), Kristin Evans (Texas State Aquarium), Kasey Gaylord-Opalewski (Mote Marine Laboratory), and Julie Henry (Ocean Advocate and Leadership Coach).
Apologies to David Bader (Aquarium of the Pacific) and Laura Diederick (Smithsonian Marine Station), who also presented sessions that were not fully recorded due to technical issues.
