A few weeks ago, I caught up with Janice McDonnell (Rutgers University) and Jim Yoder (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution). They told me about the connections between ocean science and educational outreach.
McDonnell said, “…we need a new Jacques Cousteau, and I think if we really do want to fill the pipelines with people who want to be scientists, we gotta inspire the kids we work with to be ocean scientists.”
