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.

Massachusetts Marine Educators sponsors the annual High School Marine Science Symposium each year in March at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth Campus. MME also co-sponsors the Boston Harbor Educators Conference.

Check out the summary video from the 2009 High School Marine Science Symposium Presented by the UMass Dartmouth and the Massachusetts Marine Educators. MME is a cosponsor annually of the Marine Art contest. The details for the 2012 contest can be found here or on the contests page.
