Bob Chen, PI of COSEE OCEAN, will facilitate a Special Interest Group on Ocean and Environmental Education as part of the NSF Math and Science Partnership (MSP) Learning Network Conference
When: Tuesday, January 25, 2011, 9:00-10:00 am
Where: Renaissance Hotel, Main Ballroom (999 9th St, NW, Washington DC)
Who: Anyone connected to COSEE & Anyone in the MSP Learning Network
Why: Make connections and share resources and experiences in Ocean and Environmental Education
Special Interest Group: Ocean and Environmental Education Main Ballroom
While not explicitly one of the main four STEM science disciplines (Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Earth Science) ocean and environmental education offers interdisciplinary and engaging science education opportunities. This Special Interest Group aims to bridge ocean and environmental efforts within the Math Science Partnership Learning Network with existing and developing ocean and environmental science education networks outside of the MSP Learning Network. The goal is to learn from each other, share best practices, knowledge, and networks, and further ocean and environmental science nationally as well as locally. For example, the Centers of Ocean Science Education Excellence (COSEE) network has been operating over the last 8 years to define ocean literacy, engage ocean scientists in education and public outreach, and team ocean scientists with ocean educators to increase the impacts of research as well as enrich STEM learning in formal and informal settings.
Following short presentations (2-3 minutes from each attending group) on work currently being conducted, participants will share ideas, knowledge, goals, and resources to increase the connections between existing social and professional networks. Please come to this Special Interest Group with handouts and other informational materials for distribution and be prepared to discuss your project for 2 to 3 minutes. This exchange is sponsored by COSEE Ocean Education Communities And social Networks (COSEE OCEAN), and as such can be continued and enhanced over the next 3-5 years if desired by the group.
