Are you a middle or high school teacher? Do you teach environmental science, marine science, engineering, physics, or physical science? This may be just the workshop for you! Teachers will learn about ROVs, remotely operated vehicles, and how they are used to explore, research, and work in ocean waters too deep or dangerous for humans. Fun field experiences include a trip aboard the R/V Alabama-Discovery and seeing a fully functional ROV at work. Teachers will be provided with ROV materials to take back to their school, where they will assemble a team of students to build and improve a basic ROV. Teams will return to the Sea Lab in the spring for an ROV competition!
2 teachers per school required, and must have administrative support for team component.

Did you know that Alabama ranks 5th nationwide in biodiversity, the number of plant and animal species found within the state’s borders?  Our coastal habitats not only support many of these species but also play critical roles in providing services to the hundreds of thousands of people who live in the area or depend on their resources.  Participants will explore and learn more about Alabama’s coastal marshes, beaches, and bays, investigate applicable classroom activities and learn from scientists studying these habitats.  Join us at the Sea Lab for this 4 day workshop and then teach others to understand and appreciate their environmental ABCs - Alabama’s Biodiverse Coast.

*Registration for this workshop is handled by Legacy. Please see the information and registration links for full workshop and contact information.
