Join educators during this follow-up session to the introductory professional development workshop on Learning Ocean Science through Ocean Exploration, a curriculum developed by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Office of Ocean Exploration and Research (OER). Conduct inquiry- and standards-based activities tied directly to ocean expeditions with Ocean Exploration Facilitator Tami Lunsford. In addition, participants will have the opportunity to hear from and interact with Dr. Dwight Coleman, Director of the Inner Space Center at the University of Rhode Island. Dr. Coleman will discuss Ocean Exploration and Archaeological Oceanography, and the Inner Space Center, a new facility built to support both these disciplines through live ship-to-shore telepresence technology.
Pre-registration is required and space is limited. Each participant will receive unique take-home materials, a NOAA Ocean Exploration Certificate of Participation, a continental breakfast, and lunch.
