Education and Outreach

Inspiring Future Scientists and Engineers:  How the Challenger Society help deliver your Research with Impact!

The Outreach and Education agenda of the Challenger Society aims to further the objectives of the society, by encouraging and supporting members to (i) engage with schools in order to increase the uptake of marine science degrees, training the marine scientists of the future and (ii) participate in outreach activities such as science festivals, exhibitions and conferences as Challenger Ambassadors, in order to inform other scientists, government, environmental managers and the general public about the issues we are tackling in marine science.

We are keen to explore ways in which the Challenger Society can work with you, the marine science community, to help you deliver outreach and/or deliver it on your behalf. We need to gather information on what resources and activities have already been developed in the community, and what further support is needed, so please do contact us with any information and/or ideas you would like to follow up (see contact below).

We are also particularly interested in promoting diversity within marine science, including gender diversity.

If you are keen to get involved in outreach/education with the Challenger Society, do let us know.
