Update: Aug. 23, 2019 – This workshop is full. See below for online resources related to this workshop.

The surface of our planet is more than 70 percent water, yet we understand relatively little about our oceans. Oceanography is a window into that great unknown. In this workshop, participants will have a live conversation with a JPL education specialist aboard the E/V Nautilus research vessel to hear how oceanography is being performed today and engage students in exploring our own planet. The workshop will also highlight several classroom activities from NASA/JPL Edu that can be used to connect the science back to the classroom.

  • Participants should plan to bring a laptop.
  • The workshop is not available online. You must be physically present to attend.
  • Entry is limited to educators at U.S.-based institutions and organizations.
