Educators have long known that to involve students as problem-solvers is a powerful educational tool. Examining issues first-hand and being exposed to role models can inspire and motivate students to develop research skills and presentation techniques. These skills are necessary to become active decision-makers - and ultimately, the scientists, resource managers and leaders of tomorrow.

The first summit of this year was held at the Cordell Bank National Marine Sanctuary. All of the summits have been a great success!

Sanctuary Summits are half-day interactive sessions designed to bring high school students and teachers together with ocean experts to discuss the Sustainable Seas Expeditions at the national marine sanctuaries. It is also a place to discuss and launch student projects or research proposals relating to the Sustainable Seas Expeditions.

 

Although not all of the sanctuaries offer a summit, we invite everyone to look through these pages for inspiration on how young people are taking on the challenge of becoming the new generation of ocean citizens. Come and see what they have to say and, more importantly, what they are doing about directing ocean exploration and finding solutions to our oceans' problems.
