Meet the Scientist Lecture Series

The Taras Oceanographic Foundation is that rare gem in the local non-profit community that truly raises the bar for intellectual curiosity. Whether through advanced research, offering rich cultural experiences, or by introducing students to world-class scientists through the Meet The Scientist Lecture Series, the Foundation reaches out to the community in very special ways. – Lawrence Wood, Ph.D., Research Coordinator, National Save The Sea Turtle Foundation

At least 30–50 of my students attend each month and come in the next day with discussion points galore. The lecture series provides students with real-life examples of current curriculum topics such as scientific applications and research, emerging pathogens, career options, and local scientific policy and conservation. A wonderful program that encourages communication between the school, scientists, students, parents, community members, and other stakeholders. – Shari Rodgers, Science Department, Jupiter High School
