First Paragraph

Outreach in scientific ocean drilling over the last five decades has taken many forms and has targeted diverse audiences, including the lay public, students and educators, and the Deep Sea Drilling Project, Ocean Drilling Program, Integrated Ocean Drilling Program, and International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP) communities themselves. The primary objectives are to raise awareness of scientific ocean drilling and its benefit to society, to encourage global scientific literacy and foster enlightened stewardship of the planet, and to inspire students and attract them to the general field of Earth sciences and to scientific ocean drilling in particular. To achieve these goals, evidence-based outreach components are strategically employed, including ship-to-shore video events, collaborations with museums, lecture programs, graduate student fellowships, training schools for early career scientists, web-based educational materials for teachers, and traditional and social media activities.
