Ocean Explorer Expedition Education Modules (EEM) are designed to share the excitement of daily at-sea discoveries and the science behind NOAA’s major ocean exploration initiatives with educators, students, and the public around the world.

The Battle of the Atlantic: Archaeology of an Underwater WWII Battlefield expedition offers a unique opportunity for explorers of all ages to investigate and better understand the tools, techniques, and importance of marine archaeology and to explore World War II history.

This collection includes an Expedition Purpose written for educators, standards-based lessons relevant to the technology being used during this expedition, and an OceanAGE career interview with maritime archaeologist Chuck Meide. Additionally, below you will find a Marine Archaeology Theme page which includes a selection of essays from past archaeology expeditions, additional lessons, videos, career interviews, and links to past expeditions with an archaeological focus.
