exploring the physical foundations of oceanography
Project Ocean is a comprehensive teacher professional development course rooted in physical oceanography. It is directed toward improving teacher effectiveness in generating interest and understanding in science, technology, and mathematics among pre-college students.
The AMS has a long-term interest in pre-college ocean science education. It serves the atmospheric and related oceanic and hydrologic sciences, and publishes oceanographic research journals.
Major components of Project Ocean include (a) the identification and training of a cadre of master ocean science education resource teachers who will assist the AMS in training other pre-college teachers on ocean science topics, and (b) the development and implementation of scientifically accurate and pedagogically sound instructional resource materials for teachers.
