The nature of the Deep-C Consortium provides rich opportunities for engagement with educators. Deep-C scientists are investigating the issues involved in understanding and protecting ecological communities in the Gulf of Mexico, and the opportunity to create models that make the interaction of the physical, chemical, and biological realms real. As a result, members of the Deep-C community collaborate regularly with members of the K-12 educational community -- conducting workshops, providing lesson plans and activities, and offering real-life research experiences for teachers (and students).
Some of Deep-C's opportunities and resources for educators include:
