Ocean Exploration Trust's Science Communication Fellow aboard E/V Nautilus
The Ocean Exploration Trust’s Science Communication Fellowship immerses formal and informal educators in the Nautilus Corps of Exploration and empowers them to bring ocean exploration - specifically in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) - to a global audience via the Nautilus Live website. Fellows share accounts of ocean science, expedition operations, and daily life with audiences through live audio commentary and question-and-answer sessions from aboard the ship.
Through participation in live interactions with student groups and public audiences, Fellows also engage people of all ages in real-time exploration. Science Communication Fellows then bring their expedition experience back to their own classrooms, organizations, and communities in the form of engaging deliverables like lesson plans or activities centered around their time at sea aboard Nautilus.
The Science Communication Fellowship is open to individuals who hold a United States or Canadian passport. Applicants must plan to live in the United States or Canada for the duration of the expedition season (June - December 2020).
