Come to the NEOSEC meeting to hear the outcomes of the NOAA-funded "Families by the Seaside" project that incorporated technologies, including EOL, as a way for engaging underserved families in coastal investigations. The program facilitated partnerships among educators, community organizations, technology partners, and ocean scientists, leveraging technology for expanded ocean literacy. The project teams engaged families at coastal habitats using easy-to-implement smart phone and computer applications.
