Education

Education is one of Alaska Sea Grant’s key strategies for reaching its strategic goals and objectives. It is the means to address the goal of increasing the environmental literacy of Alaskans and visitors to Alaska and it also supports research and extension.

Alaska Sea Grant is both a leader in Alaska marine-related environmental and K-16 Science-Technology-Engineering-Mathematics (STEM) education and in providing its community and industry partners with information that is accurate, timely and useful.
