There is only one EARTH workshop scheduled for 2008; we are planning on a Monterey workshop in 2009 to coincide with the annual meeting of the National Marine Educators Association (NMEA).

The 2008 EARTH workshop is cosponsored by MBARI,
the Center for Microbial Oceanography: Research and Educaton (C-MORE),
and NASA Astrobiology Science and Technology for Exploring Planets (ASTEP).

Lodging is at the Hilton Garden Inn (Corvallis, Oregon)
All events will take place at the LaSells Stewart Center unless otherwise indicated

This workshop was made possible by the logistical support provided by Amy Vandehey of OSU/CIOSS

Dates July 20-25, 2008

Oregon State University (Corvallis)

Audience K-12 educators
Opportunities Teachers involved in this workshop will:
  • Learn about cutting edge marine science and technology, ocean observatories and the data that they collect
  • Explore current scientific studies that use oceanographic data and how that data has changed our way of thinking about the oceans
  • Develop new curriculum that uses real science and near-real-time data to teach science content and process and addresses their needs and the needs of their students
  • Be part of a program that integrates the use of near-real-time data and real science into classrooms at a national level
  • Experience a rich opportunity for professional collaboration and receive classroom resources, and a modest stipend ($100/day). We ask that the participants arrange their own travel, reasonable costs will be reimbursed.
Objectives The program provides opportunities for teachers to:
  • Use real world science and cutting edge research
  • Implement and use real-time microbial oceanographic data
  • Implement new teaching strategies and standards-based activities
  • Explore conservation issues
