Deep-sea Discoveries in the Atlantic onboard the NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer:
An Online Workshop to Advance Transatlantic Ocean Science Literacy
March 3 – April 4, 2014
The NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer spent the 2013 field season exploring a wide variety of seafloor features and biological communities in and between largely unexplored canyons in the Northeast Atlantic Ocean, providing new information about how these canyons change over time and revealing hot spots for biodiversity. From July to August 2013, an interdisciplinary team of scientists from dozens of institutions and multiple sectors together with ocean educators and the public were able to observe in real time imagery from the deep Atlantic using NOAA’s new remotely-operated vehicle Deep Discoverer. – Read More
NJMEA’s largest annual conference is Teach at the Beach and this year’s theme is “Marine Technology and Our Underwater World”. This full day PD event will be held on May 20th, 2014 on Stockton College’s main campus. With offerings ranging from building Remotely Operated Vehicles to using sand as a teaching tool, educators of all ages and interest groups will find a full selection to choose from.
This event is also kicking off a partnership between NJMEA and the SRI & ETTC, a PD organization with close to 100 District members – while you certainly do not need to be from a SRI & ETTC District, if you are you may use your school’s credits to register! All participants of this year’s event will register through the SRI & ETTC portal. See the NJMEA website or the attached flyer to view the offerings, schedule and to register. Registration is limited to 125 participants, so don’t wait too long! – Download Brochure
