Our Educator on Board program is a professional development program for Australian science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) school teachers.

The program provides berths for primary and secondary teachers to sail on board our state-of-the-art marine research vessel, RV Investigator, for short voyages.

RV Investigator is our state-of-the-art marine research vessel.

On board, teachers assist scientists with marine research; enhance their STEM content knowledge; run outreach activities, including live video broadcasts; and develop curriculum linked resources to be trialed in their own classroom and shared with other teachers.

Keep up to date with the experiences of our educators on board the RV Investigator.
