Professional Development

Teachers need accurate information and resources to integrate ocean, coastal, and climate science into local and state curricula. These resources provide a variety of lesson plans, background information, resource links, tutorials, archived professional development seminars, media galleries, and interactive tools that can be used in a variety of ways in grades 5-12. Many of the resources provided here were created in partnership with the National Science Teachers Association. Teachers can access resources in additional topics at the NSTA Learning Center site,
