Educator Resources

Educators are the SMART Center's front-line partners in making community college, high school and middle school students aware of, and prepared for, well-paying, skilled technician jobs in the maritime and transportation industry.

We provide real value to our partner educators including:

  • career awareness information for students
  • career pathway tools
  • opportunities for professional development and academic credit
  • introductions to industry leaders and employers for ongoing collaboration
  • a repository of maritime and transportation-related curriculum and classroom-based activities

Summer Maritime Institutes and Get SMART Workshops provide middle and high school STEM teachers, faculty, administrators, career coaches and guidance counselors with an experience in the maritime and transportation industry. Participants learn from industry leaders, talk with skilled technicians currently working in the industry, participate in learning activities, and tour maritime-related worksites including marinas, shipyards, Naval bases, and ports. For more information about the institute or workshop, please contact Tobey Anne Allen, Outreach and Education Manager
