EARTH Workshops

Summer Workshops

EARTH Workshops have been held every summer since 2003. Each year, educators, scientists, and engineers work together to develop effective educational practices for access and use of near-real-time data in classrooms and informal education settings. Since 2006, MBARI has partnered with a variety of organizations across the country to host the EARTH workshop, bringing diverse science content and perspectives to the workshops.

2018—Newport, Oregon

Co-hosted by Oregon State University, NSF Regional Class Research Vessel (RCRV), and the Oregon Coast STEM Hub

2017—Monterey, California

Co-hosted by Polar Interdisciplinary Coordinated Education (Polar-ICE) and C-DEBI

2017—Climate and Ocean Education Symposium

Co-hosted by WorldTeach and Stevenson School in Carmel, California

2016—New Brunswick, New Jersey

Co-hosted by Polar Interdisciplinary Coordinated Education (Polar-ICE)

2015—Newport, Oregon

Co-hosted by the Oregon Coast Regional STEM Education Center Mathematics and Science Partnership (MSP)

Satellite Workshops

Since 2012, Satellite Workshops have provided the opportunity for teachers who have participated in EARTH workshops to bring the EARTH collaborative learning model to their own community. EARTH Teacher Ambassadors organize one-day workshops that bring together local scientists and teachers to explore a topic that is relevant to their community and create a set of lesson plans that provide ways to integrate data into the local curriculum.
