February 3, 2020

Did you know that in fiscal year 2019, NOAA's education programs reached more than 2.7 million youth and adults? Or that 4,060 postsecondary students were trained through NOAA-funded higher education programs? You can read about these efforts and many more in the 2019 NOAA Education Accomplishments Report.

Gault Elementary School, a NOAA Ocean Guardian School, is located on the coast of the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary in Santa Cruz, CA . From 2014-2019, Gault students participated in coastal restoration activities at their local state beaches. Partnering with Groundswell Coastal Ecology educators and volunteers, these young guardians of our ocean have helped to stabilize the coastal ecosystem by removing over 4,300 square meters of invasive ice plants and replacing them with nearly 12,000 native dune plants!

In twenty short stories, we introduce you to many different aspects of NOAA Education. The accomplishments in this report were submitted by members of the NOAA Education Council. The report describes progress toward the goals in the NOAA Education Strategic Plan. To learn more, check out NOAA Education accomplishments.
