Project Ocean Peer Training Resources

Following the training of the Washington College summer workshop, teachers conduct required peer training sessions using single topic teaching materials developed by AMS specifically for this purpose. These peer-led training sessions, at least one to two hours in length, are offered on a variety of oceanography topics.

*These modules require auxiliary materials to complete the activity. Presenters are provided a supply of these materials (30 units) on a one-time basis; additional materials beyond this initial supply must be purchased from AMS. For these auxiliary materials, please email Diem Tran at

In order to complete the peer-led workshop requirement for this course, all participants must complete the linked Google Form each time a workshop is held (this provides AMS with valuable information about your workshop). All Project Ocean alumni are also welcome to use this form to report additional workshops to AMS.

After the initial required peer-training workshops are reported and academic credit awarded, individuals may request a transcript reflecting their academic grade from California University of Pennsylvania by calling 847-716-3005 or requesting them online.
