Welcome to the home of the VIMS Marine Advisory Services Marine Education team. Our team is composed of 3 full time marine education specialists all with the goal of advancing ocean sciences education and ocean literacy. Our extended team includes teachers, scientists and others - at our institution, in our region, and across the nation.

If you are interested in any of our programs, or have questions about ocean literacy, ocean currents, ocean sunfish, or the ocean in general, please contact us through the feedback form located on the Bridge.
