The University of Rhode Island’s RV ENDEAVOR has space available for educators, of any and all disciplines, who would like to become members of a scientific research team. The Rhode Island Teacher-At-Sea (RITAS) Program is designed to establish sustainable partnerships between ocean scientists, researchers and teachers who live and teach in Rhode Island. Teachers selected for the RITAS Program will become part of a scientific research team conducting ocean science research during a cruise aboard the RV Endeavor. As an educational component of the Rhode Island ENDEAVOR Program (RIEP), the RITAS Program is dependent upon the continued support from the State of Rhode Island.
