Washington Sea Grant helps learners of all ages understand how the ocean affects them and how they affect the ocean. By partnering with K-12 educators and marine-related organizations, WSG reaches a greater number of people — expanding awareness of the environment, enhancing enjoyment of marine and coastal resources, and empowering environmental action and information sharing.
WSG offers one of the most robust marine science fellowship programs in the nation, providing graduate, undergraduate, and postdoctoral students with real-world experience in marine science, policy, and resource management.
K-12 programs include a summer camp for middle and high school students and a popular statewide ocean sciences bowl, introducing youth to the latest in marine research science.
WSG offers training on a variety of topics, from training workshops that help marine professionals improve their skills to classes for community members, teaching skills for supporting the marine environment.
From beach walks on Hood Canal and Kitsap Penninsula to Whatcom Water Weeks in Bellingham, WSG specialists offer fun outdoor activities for learning more about our oceans and coasts.
