Our Goal

Oregon Sea Grant's education program is dedicated to increasing marine science literacy in the classroom and in daily life, for people of all ages and backgrounds.

As part of that effort, we provide formal classes and labs for students of all ages, professional development support for science teachers, and a broad range of formal and informal learning opportunities to thousands of adults and children who each year who come to the Hatfield Marine Science Center Visitor Center which is operated by Oregon Sea Grant. All programs are built around marine science, tied to state and national STEM standards, and offer opportunities for learning, exploration, and fun.

There are many ways for you, your group, or your family to learn about marine science at Hatfield. Explore our webpage to see the best options for you!

Program Impact

"We brought our 7th graders to your facility and students were able to collect marine samples to look at under the microscope. They are still talking about this experience. Can't wait to bring more 7th graders back to your facility."

"The programs are great because they are hands-on, interactive, and provide access to things we could never get in the classroom"
