Since 1985, the Office of Science Teaching Activities has offered outreach environmental education opportunities to school children in Florida. The programs seek to meet two goals: to stimulate the interest of young people in exploring the natural world scientifically and to educate Floridians about the coastal marine environment of north Florida and its importance to the economy, culture, and history of this region. These programs meet both of the goals and provide exciting opportunities for young people to explore and learn.
