An essential component of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA’s) Office of Ocean Exploration and Research (OER) mission is to improve ocean science literacy and increase understanding of the need for ocean exploration. Teachers and informal educators are invited to join NOAA OER Facilitators to learn more about the importance of ocean exploration and the technologies currently used to explore the deep ocean. This 7-hour professional development workshop includes national science standards-based, hands-on activities, and additional online resources that guide classroom teaching and learning. Ocean health, unique underwater habitats, underwater mapping, and remotely operated vehicles are just a few of the topics to be addressed.
