K12 Youth and Outreach

in Marine Sciences

 Mission:  The focus of the Marine Sciences Youth and Outreach program is to bridge between the SSU Marine and Environmental Sciences Program and students in local K-12 schools.  The programs housed in this department are designed to deliver the Ocean Literacy Principles by using hands-on science and teaching techniques.   

Programs

NOSB

nosb_ssu_logo

Savannah State University  is the regional host site for the Georgia-South Carolina Ocean Sciences Bowl Competition, the Southern Stingray Bowl.  As a coastal community, Savannahians are very invested in educating constituents of all ages
about issues that face coastal cities (ex. importance of water conservation, emergency management, coastal fisheries, and coastal resource protection). By encouraging ocean literacy,  the NOSB will provide a forum for local students to understand their coastal environment and understand how humans and the ocean are connected.

As an HBCU with B.S. and M.S. degree programs in the Marine Sciences, SSU seeks to provide resources and leadership to local teachers , students, and organizations who would be interested in forming NOSB teams but who may face obstacles doing so.

 

 

Volunteer Opportunities

New to the outreach program is the Marine Sciences Volunteers.  This program provides SSU students opportunities to connect with the community through community contact booths, classroom and campus visits.  Volunteers receive confirmation of community service hours as well as opportunities to network with other Marine Science experts.  

 SSU students interested in being a volunteer should visit the volunteer page and register for Outreach Event Updates.
