A major part of science is collaboration, because some projects require more effort, resources, or people than one lab can handle. Collaborating allows us to tackle bigger projects and tasks than what would otherwise be possible. The folks at Deep Sea News organized a collaboration with many other marine science blogs to sponsor support of K-12 marine science education. Deep Sea News, the Drop-In, Southern Fried Science, Blogfish, Oyster’s Garter, Echinoblog, Cephalopodcast, The New Blue, The Right Blue, Natural Patriot, and Malaria, Bedbugs, Sealice, and Sunsets have all banded together to support Donors Choose, a website that allows teachers to ask donors to fund special projects for their classes. We worked together and chose some of the marine science projects most in need, and now we’d like to collaborate with you to get those projects funded! Check out the list of projects here: Ocean Bloggers Oceans in the Classroom Initiative.
