EARTH uses near-real-time data from ocean observatories to design and test outreach with the Internet as an interface to scientists, teachers, students, and the public. Click here for more information on the EARTH program.
EARTH 2013 • July 14 – July 19 • University of Hawaii • Honolulu, HI
Hosted by MBARI, C-DEBI, and C-MORE
July 14th–July 19th, 2013: The 2013 EARTH workshop will be held at the University of Hawaii; the focus of this year's workshop will be on MBARI's CANON program (http://www.mbari.org/canon/) and Microbial Oceanography (http://www.darkenergybiosphere.org/ and http://cmore.soest.hawaii.edu/).
A requirement of the application process is to trial an EARTH lesson, complete the feedback rubric (word version), and mail the rubric to George Matsumoto (mageATmbariDOTorg). The application should include your completed rubric and a short cover letter stating what grade level(s) and topic(s) you teach and why you would like to be selected for this workshop.

EARTH 2012: SECOORA
Featured Activity [New!]:
Microalgae: Blooms Gone Wild!
Following an introduction of the general types and characteristics of microalgae, students will analyze near real time data that reflects algae concentrations and conditions that might foster that development. By the conclusion of the lesson, students will be able to make educated predictions of potential for algae development given a set of environmental conditions.

Ocean Acidification: Is There a Problem?
Ocean Acidification is a current topic in the ocean and climate news. Students will utilize a guided WebQuest to research the possible future effects of ocean acidification, explore current models used to predict the changes in the ocean’s pH and discuss the current data collection for research.
