On Sept. 27-28, several members of a Rutgers team, led by Mike Crowley Program Manager for the Rutgers Coastal Ocean Observation Lab (COOL Lab), participated in a Science, Engineering, Technology and Math (STEM) career event hosted by the NSF in Northern Virginia. At the Ocean Observatories Initiative (OOI) exhibit, “Connecting You to the Ocean,” Crowley and Rutgers COOL Lab students Brandon Rogers (SEBS ’14) and Jessica Castoro (SEBS ’13) provided hands-on demonstrations using a Rutgers undersea glider to the scores of youth who visited the booth. Crowley and several Rutgers colleagues are a vital part of OOI’s Education and Public Engagement (EPE) team that seeks to engage youth and to get them excited about learnign about the ocean.
