This is a summer workshop for pre-college teachers of oceanographic science topics sponsored by the American Meteorological Society (AMS) and the US Naval Academy of the United States. Presentations at the workshop are made by some of the most respected American scientists in the field of oceanographic sciences. Participants have returned with material, resources and teaching modules readily adaptable to classroom presentations.
The workshop is held at the US Naval Academy, Annapolis, Maryland, 9-21 July 2017.
There are only 24 teachers selected each year, with only 1 from Canada.
The essential expenses for the selected teacher are all paid by AMS/NOAA, with contributions from CMOS and the Canadian National Committee/Scientific Committee on Oceanic Research (CNC/SCOR) .
Because this does not include the travel to and from Kansas City, CMOS and the CNC/SCOR each also provide CDN$300 (total CDN$600) to the selected Canadian participant.
Previous Canadian participants found their attendance a very rewarding and significant experience.
