Ship to Shore Live Streaming      


       Our Ship to Shore Live Streaming provides live video broadcasts via with the educators and scientists on board the ship during every expedition. The program aims at exploring the nature and process of science, raising awareness of IODP and inspiring STEM learning. Since 2014, live ship-to-shore streaming from the JOIDES Resolution (the JR, the U.S.-operated scientific ocean drilling ship) has inspired thousands of students, teachers, and museum visitors in China. 

Come and join us in a ship to shore live video.
