Bringing Ocean and Climate Inquiry to Inland Audiences

Over a four year period we offered teacher professional development on a new ocean and climate topic each year, accompanied by related lectures delivered by scientists on their cutting edge research. The focus of Exploring Connections between the Global Oceans and the Inland Southwest series was to illustrate the importance of the ocean to our region’s weather and climate, as well as to explore how inland populations affect the global oceans. 

Module 8, Bringing Ocean and Climate Inquiry to Inland Audiences, provided participants in the course an opportunity to reflect on inquiry oriented science curriculum.

Context for Use

Although the workshops have concluded, resources are available below. The accompanying lecture videos can be found here.
