OUR STAFF AND INSTRUCTORS
OceansWide's programs give Maine students a unique, hands-on experience with guidance from educators, research scientists, archeologists, and historians. With an opportunity to get a first hand look into the past, present, and future of the Gulf of Maine, we help them become aware of the treasures they stand to inherit and the importance of protecting them.

Matt began working with OceansWide in 2009, during his junior year of undergraduate study at the University of Maine. He instantly became enthralled with the idea of using Remote Operated Vehicles (ROV’s) as an educational outreach tool.
