This session will explore current tools and methods for engaging shore-based audiences in cutting edge ocean research projects – including the use of websites, blogs, social networking, and interactions with scientists through live video and audio broadcasts. How do we pique the interest of broader audiences in transformative ocean research and increase their understanding of the value of such projects to society? What kinds of programming has been successful? What size audiences participate? How do we measure success? Submissions are encouraged from projects sharing lessons learned, innovative programming, successes and challenges. (10)
