Ocean Exploration Trust

Live ship-to-shore interactions are one-on-one live video Q&A broadcasts with the Ocean Exploration Trust team aboard Exploration Vessel Nautilus to learn more about life onboard the ship and our latest deep-sea discoveries. These sessions are free to all classrooms, community events, or other learning spaces. Live interactions are conducted seven days a week during all at-sea expeditions, across all time zones

This document serves as a how-to-guide with tips for preparing your audience and creating engagement during a live interaction as well as how to extend the learning and fun after your interaction with the team at sea!
