The Regional Class Research Vessel: Transforming Research into Innovative K-12 Marine Education

When OSU received funding from the National Science Foundation to design and build the new Regional Class Research Vessels (RCRV), they established an Outreach and Education (O&E) team composed of multiple OSU partners to support increased data literacy and improved science communication skills of researchers.

Graduate student research was conducted to inform promising practices and the ongoing O&E team’s work with teachers, students, researchers, and the public. Examples of how the O&E team’s work was informed can be found in a museum exhibit, researcher-teacher co-designed curriculum, and out-of-school time STEM challenges and lessons.
