Education provides the essential foundation to understand our place in the world around us and the importance of our individual and community choices.  USC Sea Grant has a strong record of providing education by directly connecting with the communities of Los Angeles, and meeting with and responding to requests from educators, youth, or families. We provide educational resources and opportunities to connect people to the watershed, coast, and ocean. This work connects Southern California residents with science, engineering, technology, mathematics, and policy in the urban and coastal environments. Education pathways include embracing and providing platforms for learning from one another within diverse communities and cross-disciplines to create a more sustainable and resilient region. USC Sea Grant’s goal is to make current coastal, marine, and watershed sciences and local scientific expertise available to all lifelong learners in the greater Los Angeles area. Through all our programs in environmental literacy and workforce development, we work toward more inclusive and equitable experiences with a focus on priority communities of Latinx, Black, Indigenous, and other underrepresented and underserved communities.
