The Marine Education Center and Aquarium provides workshop for high school students, and offers critical in-service training for K-12 educators through workshops, programs and graduate-level courses to help educators in Georgia learn more about marine science.
The UGA Marine Education Center & Aquarium offers a variety of grant funded workshops available to high school students, teachers and graduate students, focusing on various topics in marine science. Students and educators may have the opportunity to engage and network with scientists and naturalists. Some of the programs may include web-based interactive maps, site visits, expert presenters on scientific topics and hands-on research activities alongside scientists. For a list of workshops for educators offered this year, go to the Educator Workshops page.
Discussions concerning ways to implement the information into the classrooms are also held. PLU credit may be earned for in-service teachers. UGA graduate credit may be earned as a current UGA graduate student or as a transfer student to UGA Science Education (see the Georgia Shore program for details on the Graduate Courses page).
By working with MAREX staff, educators and graduate students can learn valuable lessons and skills to apply in their classrooms.
