NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer Education Materials Collection
How Do We Explore? Professional Development – Part Two for Educators of Grades 5-12
Saturday, April 11, 2015 8:00 am – 4:00 pm
In Partnership with University of South Florida, College of Marine Science and hosted by the Clam Bayou Marine Education Center St. Petersburg, Florida
All life on Earth relies on the ocean— yet, the ocean is 95 percent unexplored, unknown and unseen by human eyes…
Join NOAA’s Office of Ocean Exploration and Research’s Melissa Ryan as you are introduced to Volume 2 of the Okeanos Explorer Education Materials Collection: How Do We Explore? Learn how to use standards-based lessons and online resources that guide classroom discovery into the innovative exploration strategies, underwater robots and other ocean tools used onboard the NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer. Topics include selecting sites for exploration in a largely unknown ocean, underwater mapping, and exploring the water column. Deep ocean exploration with remotely operated vehicles and telepresence technology that enables participation during ocean exploration missions from shore in real time is also addressed. This is Part Two of a two-part professional development series, Part One in which you should have already participated. If space is available, educators who have not yet participated in Part One are welcome to register for Part Two.
Registration is required and space is limited. Educators attending the full day will receive Volume 2 of the Okeanos Explorer Education Materials Collection, How Do We Explore?, other resources, a NOAA Ocean Exploration Certificate of Participation, a continental breakfast, and lunch. Educators who have completed both Why Do We Explore? (Part One) and How Do We Explore? (Part Two) will receive a $100 stipend.
Registration Deadline is March 20, 2015
