It’s about environmental stewardship September 29, 2023: The North American Marine Environment Protection Association (NAMEPA)…
NAMEPA is honored to have presented at this year’s National Marine Educators Association Virtual Conference. This year’s theme, Your Connection to Water, aligns perfectly with NAMEPA’s goal to educate on our interconnectedness to the water no matter if we live along the coast, near a river or inland. Everything flows to the ocean!
In our efforts to increase awareness of the importance of water in our lives and the direct effect our actions have on all water ecosystems, we continue to write, design and present a variety of educational materials for ages K-12. From our Educator Guidebooks to our most recent Planet and Ocean Discovery Series (PODS), all our interdisciplinary lessons are aligned with STEM, NGSS and/or Ocean Literacy Principles and offer educators a complete package to supplement their curriculum.
NAMEPA recognizes the key to successful education is the availability of current, accurate and relevant materials for all educators regardless of where they are located. Therefore, we offer our materials for free and provide supplemental PowerPoints and videos to enhance the lessons. Additionally, NAMEPA has begun to offer to educators (formal and informal) webinars for professional development. Our initial webinar, Introductory Data Visualization and Interpretation, aims to assist educators in understanding the different ways to graphically present and evaluate data for increased student learning.
