Understanding Seasonal Change in the Ocean Using Ocean Observing Data
This workshop will focus on understanding how ocean observing data can explain seasonal changes in the ocean. Teachers will collect data at sea, learn how to interpret various types of ocean observing data, and practice using cutting edge materials that connect the ocean to the larger earth/sun system. Teachers will also be asked to translate this new knowledge to learners through creating effective lessons for their classrooms. This workshop is aimed to provide a deeper understanding on how the Gulf of Maine works, how it changes and how we can monitor these changes through studying ocean observing data.
Date: 07/07/08 - 07/11/08
Location: University of New Hampshire
Attendance: 20 teachers from grades 7–12
