Ocean Sciences for Rural Communities via Informal Science Education

NSF Awards: 1515856

2019 (see original presentation & discussion)

Informal / multi-age

In Search of Earth’s Secrets is a 5-year project designed to create exciting “pop-up” science events in the style of pop-up restaurants, stores and art fairs. Bringing high quality earth and ocean science content to rural and urban communities with traditionally underserved populations – in unexpected places and spaces -- creates a buzz about intriguing discoveries being done around the world’s oceans and create opportunities for further learning. The project includes a giant inflatable, walk-through model of the research ship, a large floor map of the entire ocean floor, a series of interactive kiosks, and involves working with libraries, Girl Scouts and other youth organizations, program scientists, educators, and museums across the country. The In Search of Earth’s Secrets exhibit allows audiences to enjoy hands-on experiences while learning about cutting edge science and engineering topics researched by the nation’s scientific ocean drilling ship JOIDES Resolution, such as earthquakes, volcanoes, and the extinction of the dinosaurs. This video shines a spotlight on the exhibit, the locations its traveled to, and the audiences facilitating and visiting it.
