Undergraduate students from the University of Washington, University of Puerto Rico, and Queens College, New York gather for a last goodbye at the end of the UW-OOI-NSF cruise RR1713, Leg 1 of the Regional Cabled Array Operations and Maintenance Expedition.


Education is a critical component of the NSF-funded Ocean Observatories Initiative Regional Cabled Observatory effort. Members of the Cabled Array team, educators, and students have worked on numerous outreach and engagement products to share their at-sea experiences, their research utilizing Cabled Array data, and information about the amazing technologies used to make this program happen. Examples of these products from 2014 to present can be found here:

More will be added as future students and educators join the VISIONS program and complete their efforts.
