The Education and Outreach Department is part of the United States Science Support Program (USSSP) for the International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP) at the Lamont Doherty Earth Observatory.

The IODP Education Department’s mission is to raise awareness about ocean drilling science and its central role in our understanding of the Earth’s past, present and future, teach science content and process, and inspire careers in science, technology, engineering and math. Our approach includes use of authentic data, inquiry-centered activities and interdisciplinary explorations drawing from the adventures of the JOIDES Resolution ship and the earlier ocean drilling ship; the Glomar Challenger.
