Connected Learning Ecosystem Specialist
Molly Auclair joined GMRI’s education department in September 2013, as a LabVenture Fellow. Over her years here she has contributed to all of GMRI’s education programs.
In her role, Molly leads the Connected Learning Ecosystem efforts as part of the NASA-funded Learning Ecosystems Northeast work. This includes supporting educators and learning experience designers from across the region to collaborate across learning contexts in their efforts to build climate and data literacy skills for learners of many ages. Before joining GMRI, Molly worked at both the Baxter State Park and the Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge, as an Environmental Educator for AmeriCorps and the Maine Conservation Corps.
She received her BS in Biology and German Studies from Guilford College, and her MS in Marine Science from the University of New England, where she was also an NSF GK-12 Graduate Fellow. Her field research includes grey whale acoustics, salt marsh ecology, and Great Blue Heron nesting behavior.
In her free time, Molly enjoys hiking, biking, camping, and swimming her way around the outdoors.
