Ocean Explorer Expedition Education Modules (EEM) are designed to reach out in new ways to teachers, students, and the general public and share the excitement of daily at-sea discoveries and the science behind NOAA’s major ocean exploration initiatives with the people around the world.
The Bioluminescence and Vision on the Deep Seafloor 2015 expedition offers a unique opportunity for explorers of all ages to investigate and understand bioluminescence in the deep-sea environment of the Gulf of Mexico.
Expedition Purpose written specifically for educators.
Creep into the Deep, a project managed by Whale Times, Inc., for grades 3-6, links these expedition leads, partner museums, and science centers with hundreds of students and provides related deep-sea curriculum.
These theme pages each include a selection of essays from past bioluminescence and deep-sea coral expeditions, standards-based lessons relevant to the science and technology of this expedition, videos, multimedia presentations for students, career interviews, and links to past expeditions with a bioluminescence and deep-sea coral focus.
Ocean Careers to Inspire Another Generation of Explorers, or OceanAGE Careers, invites students to learn about the talented people who explore our ocean planet. Here is a career interview with bioluminescence expert Dr. Edith Widder.
