UNH has joined Dr. Robert Ballard’s Ocean Exploration Trust (OET) to bring STEM experiences and ocean exploration to New Hampshire classrooms. Our one-day Ocean Exploration in the Classroom Workshop held last spring was very well-received and we are pleased to announce that we will be offering this free workshop again this fall on Saturday, September 10, 2016.

The workshop highlights STEM elements in professional deep-sea exploration, and will show how to use cutting edge technologies in the classroom, spotlight STEM careers, provide new resources for your students, and introduce teachers to the New Hampshire OET Community STEM Program.

Workshop includes:
•Training on and access to OET’s STEM Learning Modules— an inquiry-based lesson and activity resource designed to match the excitement of live exploration with NGSS & CC for the classroom and out-of-school environment.
•Demonstration of the technology of telepresence – see what students experience when they join Exploration Vessel (E/V) Nautilus and its remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) LIVE on the seafloor. Coaching on best practices for incorporating live broadcasts and streaming exploration in your classroom.
•Network with STEM professionals, explorers, and educators; learn about new programs available through the Community STEM Program partnership.

The one-day workshop will be held at UNH-Manchester on September 10, 2016. There is space for 30 New Hampshire educators, formal and informal, any grade level.
Registration will open soon at http://extension.unh.edu/oceanexploration
