I’m sure that many of you can agree that education can feel like an unrewarding profession, a week after week or year after year cycle that rarely shows it impact, but I hope that you manage to find the small and quaint victories in your work and I hope that those moments prove your efforts worthwhile.

In this issue of Current, you will read about recent new lesson plans that discuss plastic pollution and the ocean gyres. You will also read about new tools to aid in the development of effective lesson plans, as well as a novel artistic application for algae! We also cover a new educational book that discusses ospreys and their unique adaptations and behavior.

As marine science takes steps to become a more equitable field, we also write about a series of children’s book designed to increase representation of marginalized communities within the industry.
