Education

CRRF has had a long term interest in marine education through publications, educational booklets, public talks, hosting interns and contributing newspaper articles. Our new laboratory building has a class/conference room, plus a teaching library and media room adjacent and we are looking towards expanding the program and reaching out to Palauans of all ages.

In the past few years we have been arranging tours and visits to oceanographic research vessels working in Palau waters, such as the R/V Roger Revelle of Scripps Institution of Oceanography, exposing students to a type of scientific activity and facility which is only occasionally present in Palau.  We do not want students to miss an opportunity to be exposed to “something different” that might inspire them to go on into a career in science or science education.
