Education is the first step to Save Our Seas!
NAMEPA’s array of educational materials can be utilized by students, educators, parents, seafarers, and industry professionals. Our three NGSS-aligned curriculum guides provide interactive lessons for educators to adapt to their own classroom. Our activity book, flyers, and handouts can be used by anyone to educate others on the marine environment, marine pollution and how to prevent it, and the maritime industry.
“Wow, the NAMEPA curriculum guide packet is great! I would have asked for that sooner had I known it is available. My students are making use of a few of the reference items as well as enjoying seeing the calendar with the winning artwork from last year. “
