NOAA Workshop

Suggested for science educators grades 5 through 12.

Saturday, November 15, 2014:   Why do we explore?
Saturday, May 2, 2015:  How do we explore?

Join us for this two-part workshop series, designed to help you use online resources and inquiry- and standards-based lessons to connect your students to the living world.

You’ll also learn how to guide classroom inquiries about:

  • How sites are selected for exploration
  • Mapping techniques
  • Water-column exploration
  • Remotely operated vehicles
  • Telepresence technology that enables access to real-time ocean exploration.

Space is limited. Participants who attend both days (Fall 2014 and Spring 2015) of this two-part series will receive a $100 stipend. Participants receive the Okeanos Explorer Education Materials Curriculum Collection, a NOAA Ocean Exploration Certificate of Participation and other materials related to the presentations.

Program Outcomes

Every Shedd program is evaluated so we never stop learning from you. Here’s what we’ve learned from our participants about NOAA:  

• The workshop helps teachers understand how to use a new curriculum and access multiple resources to enhance the integration of ocean exploration topics into their classroom.

• Workshop participants increase their understanding of the value of exploring the ocean, as well as confidence in their ability to teach ocean science.
