NOAA Coral Reef Conservation Program cordially invites teachers in the south Florida area to attend a one-day workshop on ocean acidification, introducing our new OA Data-in-the-Classroom NODE module. Teachers will learn to use real data from NOAA to teach ocean acidification and how it affects coral reefs and other marine calcifiers, using integrated scalable lesson plans associated with this module. Workshop will include demos and multimedia to use in your classroom, a background science presentation on ocean acidification, and a walk-through of the five scalable lesson plans and data exercises that are part of this Data-in-the-Classroom project. Teachers will receive $75 stipend for workshop participation and $25 stipend after follow up survey. Teachers will also receive additional educational materials on coral reefs and ocean acidification, including posters, OA teachers guide, and multimedia DVDs. Limited seating: Participants will receive confirmation email once their registration is processed.
