C-MORE Science Kits available from MBARI for short-term loan
The Center for Microbial Oceanography: Research and Education (C-MORE) was a NSF funded program (2006-2016) based in Hawaii. As part of their education outreach, the C-MORE team developed these excellent outreach kits that offer lesson plans and materials for hands-on science activities in a self-contained format. They are designed for use with a range of grade levels. Each kit provides the information and supplies necessary for educators to teach their students about a particular topic in oceanography. These easy to use kits are a great resource for any classroom and can be borrowed for short periods of time – you are responsible for arranging both pickup and dropoff of the kits. The kits are currently available from several locations in Hawaii, Oregon, Massachusetts, and MBARI. With the end of the C-MORE funding, the STEM Pre-Academy at University of Hawaii has agreed to take over the science kit website. You can learn more about the Pre-Academy and the science kits on their website as well as check kit availability and reserve a kit.
