Magic Planet Installation Evaluation Findings August, 2010
Our front-end and formative evaluation report for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is part of a series of evaluations done on spherical display systems such as the internal-projection Magic Planet and NOAA's external-projection Science on a Sphere.
Port Orford Community Working Group
The working group project led by the Port Orford Ocean Resource Team used concept mapping to better understand the potential effects of a changing climate, and to consider what, if anything, the Port Orford community might want to do to address those effects. Read their report [.pdf] [HTML]
Professional Development for Informal Educators
National Science Foundation funding is also supporting the development of face-to-face and distributed, asynchronous professional-development opportunities for educators in communicating current marine and aquatic sciences research in a wide range of informal science education sites. Workshops and on-line courses help educators in museums, zoos, aquariums, state and national parks, and after school clubs develop partnerships with scientists while mastering science communication techniques.
