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.
The EARTH workshop for 2018 will be held June 24-29, 2018 in Newport Oregon and co-hosted by the NSF Regional Class Research Vessel, Oregon State University, and Oregon Coast STEM Hub. To keep up to date on all things EARTH, please join our facebook page.
Because we only have a limited number of spots available in each EARTH workshop, applications are required. Applications, including all supporting materials, are usually due by the end of February for the summer workshop. The application process comprises two steps, outlined below. Your application is complete when we have received both parts.
- Complete the online EARTH Workshop Application form and submit any additional resources as appropriate.
- Try out one (or more) EARTH lesson in your classroom or institution and complete the online feedback rubric (Note: this will take you to a new page on SurveyMonkey).
Returning teachers who have previously participated in an EARTH Workshop can make their application stronger by demonstrating a commitment to mentoring colleagues (hosting an in-service or EARTH Satellite workshop in your area), enhancing the EARTH resources (testing out Lessons in Development and providing extensive feedback or new resources to enrich our website), or disseminating EARTH content (presenting about EARTH at a meeting or conference). Please contact us if you have any questions about the application process.
In 2016, MBARI updated our website to a new platform, and as a result, many of our older workshops and activities have been archived. We are in the process of posting these older activities on our current website, but if there is a specific activity you are searching for and can’t find, please let us know and we will be happy to provide you with a direct link.
