effective, would be highly worthwhile for the long-term public support of our science.

Some specific educational outreach activities that could be highly effective include:

  1. The creation and maintenance of Web-site-based learning sites shared among institutions or agencies. NSF could support the development of teaching modules (electronic workbook) of current oceanographic concepts (e.g., El Niño) for primary and secondary school teachers that would include concise description of the scientific concepts, "classic" data that can be downloaded and manipulated by students, and a list of related projects and reading.

  2. A program to support lecture to students in primary and secondary schools by graduate students.

  3. Participation of high school teachers in seagoing cruises. Science teachers represent a large reservoir of well-educated, scientifically aware communicators who uniformly welcome the exposure to scientific experiences. They enthusiastically transmit their experiences to their classes. They also interact with the parents of their students, their schools, their districts, and the general public. As a result, including teachers in field studies provides a major multiplier of the research experience. CORE could serve as a center for publicizing this program, and as clearing house for teachers wishing to join a cruise.
