Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences is expanding the reach of the Keller BLOOM Program by offering a professional development workshop for Maine high school science teachers interested in collaborating with Bigelow Laboratory scientists to enhance ocean science education in the state. This four-day summer workshop, led by Dr. David Fields and Dr. Nicole Poulton, will provide teachers with training, tools and hands-on research experience so that they are better equipped to teach ocean science in their classrooms.

Participants will spend a day in the field on a research cruise, attend seminars by Bigelow scientists, and engage in hands-on laboratory learning activities. All attendees will receive curriculum materials, aquatic field sampling and laboratory equipment, and follow-up academic year support, as well as 3 Continuing Education Units. Housing near the Lab, a transportation reimbursement and most meals are provided.
