About the Event

We’re back!

After rescheduling twice due to COVID-19 concerns, the S.C. Sea Grant Consortium and the S.C. Aquarium (SCA) are excited to announce the new date for our first REconnect (Researcher/Educator) Symposium! This free event is designed to:

  • Connect educators with local coastal and marine scientists to learn about ways to incorporate research into education programming as well as avenues to address the new College- and Career-Ready Science Standards.
  • Engage scientists with opportunities to communicate research using non-lecture formats (e.g., demonstrations).

Scientific Abstract Submission

We are accepting abstracts from any S.C. coastal and marine scientist interested in sharing their research through interactive formats.

To submit an abstract, email a 500-word (or less) description of your project to

Information sessions will be offered to accepted authors to provide an overview of the event as well as assistance on communication and interpretation techniques that best fit your project (information session dates TBD).
