COSEE-OS Participates in BLOS Workshop - 08.24.2012

Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences (BLOS) hosted the Exploring Oceanography Summer Workshop for six Maine teachers from July 24-July 27, 2012. This professional development workshop provides teachers with training, tools and hands-on research experience so that they are better equipped to bring ocean science materials into Maine classrooms.

In addition to field experience, seminars by Bigelow scientists and hands-on laboratory time, teachers interacted with Phoebe Jekielek, a Marine Education Associate, from COSEE-OS. The hour-long presentation provided an overview of useful online classroom resources, including the Ocean-Climate Interactive, webinar series archives and the Concept Mapping tool developed by COSEE-OS. In addition, teachers were also directed to useful data sets provided by participating webinar scientists and data manipulation tools connected with the Aquarius mission.
