K-12 Resources

The College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment and the Sea Grant College Program offer a variety of free or low-cost resources to K-12 teachers seeking earth, ocean, and environmental science information and curriculum materials. Sea Grant sponsors professional development courses in conjunction with the state Department of Education, National Science Foundation, and other partners, and the Delaware Geographic Alliance provides many professional development opportunities.

Oceanoraphy Merit Badge

Through the help of Delaware Sea Grant Marine Education Specialist, Chris Petrone, Scouts learn about a variety of topics including the importance of the ocean, the four branches of oceanography, properties of seawater, seafloor topography, ocean circulation and marine biology.

Most of Petrone’s marine education outreach is geared towards students in kindergarten through 12th grade, and the oceanography badge offers an experience that cannot be learned in a classroom.

Boy Scouts obtain the badge by completing a required workbook and on-site training.
