Connecticut Science Curriculum
Project Oceanology has pioneered a hands-on, inquiry oriented approach to science for students. Science standards set by the Connecticut Department of Education and Connecticut's state wide testing incorporate increasing emphasis on this approach to science learning.

Project Oceanology programs can help educators address Connecticut Framework Goals and Standards including:
* Understanding and applying basic concepts, principles and theories of biology, chemistry, physics and earth sciences including ecology and their interrelationships
* Recognizing and participating in scientific endeavors which are evidence-based and use inquiry skills that lead to a greater understanding of the world
* Identifying and solving problems through scientific exploration
* Analyzing the possibilities and limits of science and technology in order to make and defend decisions about societal issues; understanding that the way in which scientific knowledge is formulated is critical to its validity.
