NOAA How Do We Explore? Aquarium Workshop

Join NOAA OER Facilitator Connie Leverett on Saturday, June 28 at Audubon Aquarium of the Americas as you are introduced to Volume 2 of the Okeanos Explorer Education Materials Collection: How Do We Explore? Participants will receive Volume 2 of the Okeanos Explorer Education Materials Collection, other resources, a certificate of participation, continental breakfast and lunch.

Topics for this workshop include underwater mapping, exploring the water column, and selecting sites for exploration. We will also look at deep ocean exploration with ROVs (remotely operated vehicles) and telepresence technology that enables participation during ocean exploration missions from shore in real time.
