School of Rock 2009: A Hands-on, Research-based Expedition for Earth and Ocean Science Educators aboard the JOIDES Resolution during the IODP 321T Expedition

Hélder Pereira, Leslie Peart, Sharon Cooper

Abstract


The purpose of School of Rock 2009 was to bring an international group of teachers from the U.S., France, Japan and Portugal together for two weeks to travel aboard The JOIDES Resolution and allow them to become familiar with the science that goes on aboard the ship. Now they are using the things they learned to enhance the teaching of science in their schools, conduct in-service presentations to share ideas with other teachers, and encourage their students to become the next generation of marine scientists.
