The National Marine Educators Association’s annual conference was just held in Charleston, South Carolina. This four-day event was replete with activities for both new and experienced marine educators. Featured speakers included scientists, environmentalists, artists, writers, storytellers and members of the Gullah/Geechee Nation. The sessions were chock-full of curriculum ideas and hands-on activities. To access presenter materials go to download.nmea2017.org
Next year’s NMEA conference will be hosted by the Southwest Marine Educators Association chapter from July 15-20 in sunny Long Beach, CA! It is being held on the Queen Mary, docked adjacent to the Aquarium of the Americas.
We were proud to have so many NAME members representing the Pacific Northwest at the conference this year! We hope to see some of you there next year!
