Diversity / Connecting cultures and communities
Do your programs reflect the diverse communities of your area? How do you address social justice and equity issues in aquatic and marine science programming? How do you make sure your class curriculum is culturally sensitive and relevant to the communities you serve? Share your tips, techniques and lessons learned for successfully connecting all learners with the aquatic world.
Innovative Teaching, Research and Restoration
Do you have a cool or new science lesson, restoration project, citizen science program, or community learning project to share? Are you incorporating the latest breaking research into your teaching or bringing specialists into your classroom? We are looking for teachers, informal educators, researchers or marine science loving citizens who want to share an innovative new idea or project they have been working on.
Do you teach about freshwater environments or urban watersheds? How do you incorporate “calls to action” and solutions in discussions about human impacts on aquatic ecosystems? Share your knowledge and tips about freshwater programming in urban environments and how you make the connection to our one big ocean.
