The mission of the OER Education Program is to support OER's vision and mission by reaching out in new ways to stakeholders to improve the literacy of learners of all ages with respect to ocean issues. The Program strives to engage educators and students in learning more about ocean exploration and how they can use science, technology, engineering, and mathematics associated with exploring the ocean in their classrooms. This requires high-quality, effective collaborations between ocean explorers and America's teachers to provide a variety of learning and teaching tools focused on the science of ocean exploration and discovery. The Program offers onsite and online professional development in the use of these materials through formal Education Alliance Partnerships with aquariums and science centers located throughout the country.
