NOAA Ocean Exploration

Date: November 2, 5 p.m. CST and December 7, 5 p.m. CST

An essential component of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA’s) Ocean Exploration mission is to improve ocean science literacy and increase understanding of the need for ocean exploration. Classroom teachers and informal educators are invited to join NOAA Ocean Exploration's Education Team to learn more about the deep ocean, deep ocean exploration, and the resources and activities available to share this exciting field with students in their new Deep Dive workshop mini-series. The Fall program focuses on bioluminescence. 

Registration for these virtual workshop series is through Eventbrite and is being handled by the National Marine Sanctuary Foundation (NMSF).  Please email or call (251) 861-2141 x7515 with any questions.
