Data Stream Ocean course – Free!

Calling all educators, both formal and informal!



There are spaces available in the Fall 2013 semester of DataStreme Ocean!  The only cost to you is your time — time to complete the weekly investigations and time to attend the meetings (plus whatever costs are involved for travel to the meetings).


DataStreme Ocean explores the ocean in the Earth system with special emphasis on:  1) the internal properties and workings of the ocean, 2) the interactions between the ocean and other components of the Earth system; and 3) the human and societal impacts on the ocean and the response to those interactions.

DataStreme Ocean is a 13-week course that uses electronically transmitted data and learning materials combined with Study Guide readings and investigations and offers FREE graduate credit in science through the State University of New York at Brockport.  This course is delivered online in weekly installments; all materials and texts are provided at no cost to participants; and there are two required face-to-face meetings (here in NC) each semester.


Participants are expected to attend both face-to-face meetings!  The first meeting will be in Raleigh on a Saturday in August.  The final course meeting will be in Duck on a Saturday in December.
