I have participated in workshops sponsored by COSEE Great Lakes and Mid-Atlantic COSEE. I have also presented at NMEA 2006 in New York on behalf of MA-COSEE on using real-time data in the classroom.
Background with Respect to Ocean Sciences Education:
I was raised in Puerto Rico, so I've been surrounded by water all my lfe. Being close to the Great Lakes led me to choose Cleveland as my home in the US.
