The Rhode Island Teacher At Sea (RITAS) Program, designed by the Office of Marine Programs (OMP), establishes sustainable partnerships among ocean scientists, researchers and Rhode Island educators. Teachers selected for the RITAS Program will become part of a scientific research team conducting ocean science research while cruising aboard the RV Endeavor.
All K-12 educators of Science, Technology, Art, Math, English and History are invited to apply. There is no application deadline. Applications will be reviewed as received and will be maintained and considered for placement through the duration of the program.
