Sponsorship Packages

Project Oceanology provides more than 20,000 students and adults annually with opportunities to learn about the ocean through firsthand exploration and experiences. Nurturing interest and inspiring enthusiasm for science and for our planet’s marine environment from our year-round waterfront facility in Groton, Connecticut, our vision is to be the center of excellence for inquiry, and place-based science and marine education serving the evolving needs of our global community.

 

Join us in honoring Howard “Mickey” Weiss Ph.D, founder of Project Oceanology. Since 1972, Mickey has been a catalyst for change and integral to our mission and trajectory. It is our privilege to celebrate his impact and service.
