Outreach

Outreach is one of the key ways we can give back to our community and society in general. Here below are examples of our recent outreach activities during 2013-2016.

  • High-school student Morgan Kane – RSI Scholar
    MIT - MSEAS Group - July 2016
    Congratulations to Morgan Kane for completing her RSI summer report and presentation on "Go with the flow: The Effect of Geophysical Flows on Transports". As a visiting junior high-school student from Briston, RI, Morgan successfully completed her 2016 summer research with our MSEAS group at MIT.
  • High-school student Chuang Tang – RSI Scholar
    MIT - MSEAS group - July 2015
    Congratulations to Chuang Tang for completing his RSI report and presentation on “Time-Optimal Path Planning in Dynamic Flow Fields with Ship Wakes.” As a visiting visiting junior high-school student from Little Rock, AR, Chuang successfully completed his 2015 summer research with our MSEAS group at MIT.
  • High-school student Ajay Jain – RSI Scholar
    MIT - MSEAS group - July 2015
    Congratulations to Ajay Jain for completing his RSI report and presentation on “Time-Optimal Robotic Path Planning in Dynamic Ocean Flows: Efficiency and Sensitivity Studies.” As a visiting junior high-school student from Cupertino, CA, Ajay successfully completed his 2015 summer research with our MSEAS group at MIT.
  • High-school student Jordan Benjamin – RSI Scholar

    MIT - MSEAS group - May 2014
    Congratulations to Abhinav Gupta from IIT Kanpur for completing his S. N. Bose Scholars Program with us this summer 2014. Abhinav completed original research on “Deterministic and Stochastic Modeling of Coupled Ocean Biological-Physical Dynamics” with our MSEAS group at MIT.
  • Lessons on the Ocean
    Cambridge - October 2013
    MIT undergraduates Grace Young and Teresa Hegarty developed lessons and educational drawings for middle and high school students about the role of technology in human's understanding and management of the ocean. These lessons and drawings were completed in spring 2014 and featured in the Mission 31 Skype-in-the-classroom curriculum.
    For example, in the first 20-minute interactive lesson on "Why care about the ocean?", they discuss seven reasons why the ocean is important; it 1) covers 70% of earth's surface; 2) generates half the oxygen people breathe; 3) provides seafood; 4) is a place for recreation; 5) generates renewable energy; 6) transports 90% of goods to the US; 7) is a new frontier for discovery.
