The Ocean Exploration Trust's Nautilus Ambassadors are members of our STEM Community program who sail aboard Exploration Vessel Nautilus to experience ocean exploration and sea-going research first hand. Ambassadors all have a passion for learning and an involvement in STEM education as classroom teachers, informal educators, STEM professionals or community leaders. Nautilus Ambassadors will gain exposure to science, technology, engineering, communications, and education outreach during their time onboard as they shadow professionals in each field. After their offshore experience, Ambassadors return home as a representative of the Nautilus Exploration Program to share the excitement of ocean exploration and research with their peers, schools, and communities.
Nautilus Ambassadors are selected for participation in the Nautilus Exploration Program by invitation only. Funding for the Nautilus Ambassador program comes from many partners’ generous support of the Community STEM Program.
