Initial Benefits and Outcomes of Experiential Learning Program in Complex Field Sciences
The Northern Gulf Institute and its partners developed the Mississippi State University – Science Education at Sea (MSU-SEAS) program with the intention to provide an engaging, experiential learning opportunity to those students who attend historically underfunded districts, regions of exceptionally high poverty (Title I Schools), and those districts with high percentages of underrepresented populations, as well as home-school students, who may otherwise not have the opportunity to undertake these often expensive, and sometimes “exclusive” educational experiences.
