Audience/Objectives

Audience: Master K-12 teachers and supervisors of science who teach or supervise the teaching of units with significant oceanography content.

Objectives: The Project is directed towards improving teacher effectiveness in generating interest and understandings in science, technology, and mathematics among precollege students. The Maury Project is intended to:

  1. introduce master teachers to the physical foundations of selected oceanographic topics and issues
  2. explore and suggest ways in which these understandings and concepts can be employed in school studies
  3. prepare workshop attendees to conduct training sessions on selected oceanography topics and issues for teachers in their home areas
  4. support training sessions held by these teachers, on a continuing basis, with instructional resource materials, scientific guidance and opportunities to interact with professionals in the oceanography field
