Sea Education Association helps prepare environmentally literate leaders of the future
The National Science Board established the Public Service Award in 1996. The annual award recognizes people and groups (e.g., companies, corporations, organizations) that have increased the public's understanding of science or engineering. The Sea Education Association (SEA), the sole recipient of the Public Service Award in 2016, began operations in 1971 and is now an internationally recognized leader in undergraduate ocean education. Based in the oceanographic research community of Woods Hole, Massachusetts, SEA equips high school students and undergraduates with tools to become environmentally literate leaders prepared to address the defining issue of the 21st century: human impacts on the environment.
