The Office of Education works to advance education priorities both within NOAA and with our external partners.
The NOAA Education Council is the forum where representatives from NOAA’s major education programs coordinate activities, increase capacity for NOAA educators, and monitor progress under the framework of the NOAA Education Strategic Plan.
NOAA has a rich tradition of supporting citizen science. Today that tradition is being carried on through a portfolio of projects fostered and supported across the Agency.
NOAA’s education programs leverage the public investment in the agency’s scientific enterprise, providing the education community with access to world-class scientists, research and data. NOAA coordinates with other science agencies that make similar investments through interagency committees and working groups.
