Intro to Oceanography/A Changing Sound Teacher Workshop & Cruise

In the classroom, we’ll study how living and non-living components of Long Island Sound have changed over time. Aboard the Envirolab, we’ll use an otter trawl, plankton net, and mud grab to sample for organisms. Afterwards, we’ll anchor and use equipment to measure important environmental variables.

About The Event

Project Oceanology invites you to join one of our teacher workshop and cruise!

Project O makes it easy for teachers to incorporate exciting, hands-on, inquiry based learning experiences into their curricula. At these workshops you'll learn how our programs align with the Next Generation Science Standards and how our pre- and post- curricular materials can be used to build your Project O experience into an NGSS-aligned unit. Afterwards, you’ll live the experience yourself aboard our fully equipped research vessel on Long Island Sound! You’ll leave with curricular materials and lesson plans to take back to your classroom.

Intro to Oceanography/A Changing Sound

In the classroom, we’ll use Project Oceanology’s long-term dataset to study how living and non-living components of Long Island Sound have changed over time. Aboard the R/V Envirolab, we’ll use an otter trawl, plankton net, and mud grab to sample for organisms. Afterwards, we’ll anchor and use oceanographic equipment to measure oxygen, temperature, salinity, and other important environmental variables.
