Build-a-drifter Educator Professional Development Workshop May 10, 2014

The Drifter Building Workshop held on May 10 was a success!  We built 12 drifters that will be deployed in the coming year.

Looking for a unique and meaningful way to teach oceanography while connecting students to real-science tools and applications of technology?  Build an ocean-going drifter and deploy it. Your students will be amazed as they watch and learn in real-time how surface ocean currents circulate in your area. Professional development around using ocean observing data and tools in the classroom will be included.

Join us on May 10, 2014 from 10am to 4pm at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.  Lunch is included. Cost is $25 per person if you are currently a member of one of the following: Gulf of Maine Marine Educators Association, Massachusetts Marine Educators, and Southern New England Marine Educators.  If you are not yet a member of one of these Marine Educator Chapters, you will be required to do so during the registration process.
