Massachusetts Marine Educators (MME) is a dynamic, grass roots organization of teachers, informal educators, students, educational institutions, and others. Our goal is to develop a marine literate society and promote awareness of the ocean world by integrating marine studies into existing curricula.

Massachusetts Marine Educators helps to develop and share curriculum materials, holds frequent workshops and conferences, provides in-service teacher training, and facilitates networking among teachers and other educators. MME cooperates with other educational organizations to advance the cause of marine education on the local, state, and national levels. MME is a regional chapter of the National Marine Educators Association (NMEA).

Massachusetts Marine Educators is governed by a board of directors that includes classroom teachers, administrators, informal educators, and scientists. The board meets bi-monthly during the school year and at the annual WHOI Conference. Board meetings are open to the membership of MME. MME is a tax-exempt, non-profit organization operating under applicable state and federal laws.

The Massachusetts Marine Educators sponsor 2 High School Marine Science Symposiums each year. They are held at the University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth, and Endicott College in Peabody.

An annual meeting and conference is held at Woods Hole each spring.

MME also is a co-sponsor of the Boston Harbor Educators Conference in the fall. The September Boston Harbor Education Conference is now posted, and advance registration is now possible.

MME is a cosponsor annually of the Marine Art contest. Download a calendar with some of the artwork from the 2013 Art Contest.

The Fall 2014 Edition of the Flotsam & Jetsam journal is online.
