Teachers At Sea

In spring 2014, MARE prepared two teachers for a teacher-at-sea experience on board the Scripps Institute of Oceanography research vessel, the R/V Melville. The month-long ocean acidification-focused research cruise, led by Chief Scientist William Cochlan of San Francisco State University, will travel from San Francisco, CA to Seattle, Washington.

You can follow the cruise and the adventures of the two selected educators:
