Summary:EPA divers can visit K-12 classrooms to talk with students about ocean stewardship. Often these visits include pictures and video of aquatic creatures as well as images of polluted water sites that inform students how EPA uses scientific diving to help protect our underwater environment. Some divers also bring diving equipment for students to see and touch, helping students to better understand what is involved in undersea research, including the importance of math and science in scientific diving. Interested in having a scientific diver visit your classroom? Contact the Unit Diving Officer at the nearest diving unit, which can be located through this site.
