(October 07, 2021) --

The Dauphin Island Sea Lab invites educators to take a deep dive into bioluminescence with NOAA's Ocean Exploration Education Team and DISL's Discovery Hall Programs in a live online professional development workshop. 

An essential component of the professional development mini-series is to improve ocean science literacy and increase understanding of the need for ocean exploration. The 2021 Spring Series focused on hydrothermal vents. The 2021 Fall series focuses on bioluminescence. 

The definition of bioluminescence is light produced by a chemical reaction within a living organism. This workshop will explore relevant educational activities and resources, and an opportunity to learn from a bioluminescence expert. Live online sessions will be held on Tuesday, November 2 and Tuesday, December 7 at 5 p.m. CST. Registration is through Eventbrite. The password is NOAAOER-PD 2021.

Any questions can be directed to DHPWorkshops@disl.edu or (251) 861-2141 x7515. 

This program is provided via collaboration between DISL, NOAA Ocean Exploration, and the University of Rhode Island Graduate School of Oceanography's Inner Space Center, with support from the Ocean Exploration Cooperative Institute and the National Marine Sanctuary Foundation.
