Rutgers hosted two Teaching with Data Workshops (New Brunswick, New Jersey, May 19-21, 2017 (chemistry focused), and June 2-4, 2017 (geology focused) in an effort to bring together undergraduate professors, from both community colleges and universities, from ten states to learn the software and explore classroom activities that use OOI data.
Last weekend a Teaching with Data Workshop (New Brunswick, New Jersey, May 19-21, 2017) brought together undergraduate professors from six states to learn the software and explore pilot content developed by OOI.
Utilizing high volumes of data for research and education increases both opportunities and challenges to analyzing and synthesizing these data into scientific understanding. We are pleased to offer two workshops that explore the unprecedented opportunities to engage undergraduate learners in authentic data experiences using real-world data sets, models, and simulations from the OOI. Chemistry and […]
Thousands of young aspiring scientists and oceanographers with their families and teachers got a hands-on lesson on how to measure ocean properties from members of the OOI team during the 2014 USA Science & Engineering Festival in Washington, D.C., last month.
