This day-long event will connect student participants to experts in the fields of marine science education through engaging sessions and workshops and give them a chance to present their personal marine conservation/education work in a professional setting. Additionally, this event will give students a chance to learn about careers in marine science education by networking with professional educators from diverse backgrounds and by providing them with an opportunity to learn about how the National Marine Educators Association can support their career interests in marine conservation. During the day participants will also have the chance to take part in the NMEA plenary session.
