University. Partners on this initiatitve include Columbia Lamont Doherty, the New York Aquairum, the New York
Harbor Foundation, the New York Academy of Sciences, the River Project, Good Shepher Services, Smartstart
Evaluation and Research, the University Maryland Center for Environmental Science and Fearless Solutions. In
this study, teachers from one cohort were paired with teachers from a succeeding cohort in order to facilitate a
mentoring process between the two cohorts. This allows for teacher ambassardors to have a support structure
throughout the program, seek integral feedback, modify teaching techniques, integrate project research and establish
long term partnerships within the project team.
