Professional Development for Educators of Grades 5-12
Saturday, March 9, 2013
8:30 am – 4:00 pm
In Partnership with and Hosted by Seattle Aquarium Seattle, Washington
This professional development introduces Volume 2 of the Okeanos Explorer Education Materials Collection: How Do We Explore? The NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer is the Nation’s first ship dedicated to solely exploring the world’s ocean. Participants will learn how to use standards-based lessons and other online resources that guide classroom investigations into the innovative exploration strategies, sophisticated instrumentation and equipment used onboard the ship to explore our largely unknown world ocean. Topics include how targets are selected for exploration, mapping techniques, water column exploration, remotely operated vehicles and telepresence technology that enables access to real time ocean exploration. Participants will also learn how explorers use data gathered at target sites to learn more about our deep ocean world.
Registration is required and space is limited. Educators who attend the full day will receive a $50 stipend. Each participant will receive Volume 2 of the Okeanos Explorer Education Materials Collection, How Do We Explore?, a NOAA Ocean Exploration Certificate of Participation, continental breakfast, and lunch.
Registration Deadline is February 15, 2013
