Since March 2009, live ship-to-shore conferences from the JOIDES Resolution (the JR, the nation's scientific ocean drilling ship) have inspired more than 15,000 students, teachers, and museum visitors. Our live video events will lift science out of the textbooks and allow students to learn about cutting edge research and careers by talking directly to scientists, technicians, and crew as they live and work aboard the vessel.
