Ocean Observing Systems Online Workshop
Date: 10/23/09 - 11/13/09
Location: Online

COSEE West invites formal and informal educators to participate in an exciting online workshop, Ocean Observing Systems (OOS). This invitation is open to educators and anyone else interested in learning more about the way scientists and researchers use remote sensing technologies to study our oceans. This workshop is free for participants and can be watched on your own schedule.

The workshop will feature two presentations of research using OOS data: Dr. Rebecca Shipe, University of California, Los Angeles, who will speak on algal blooms in Santa Monica Bay and Dr. Edith Widder, Ocean Research Conservation Association (ORCA), who will present Eye in the Sea and Bioluminescence. We will also host a panel of educators who have incorporated OOS data into lesson plans for their classroom.

The workshop environment will include "rooms" to ask questions of the scientists and educators who work with OOS technologies. Participants will be able to interact with other educators around the country and the world. COSEE West will post supporting teacher resources in the online environment. Optional graduate credit from California State University, Fullerton for $90/unit.
