2021 Virtual Ocean Classroom Teacher Workshop

Hosted by Allen Tom, Superintendent, Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary
Dr. Andrew Rossiter, Mary Roney, and Dean Spencer, Waikiki Aquarium

Andy Collins, Papahanaumokuakea Marine National Monument

Join educators from the Waikiki Aquarium and NOAA’s Office of National Marine Sanctuaries to learn about new lesson plans for teachers that students can complete either virtually or in a classroom. The workshop is geared towards teachers (grades 3-8), but open to any interested member of the public. Over two days, teachers will learn about the three national marine sanctuaries in the Pacific Islands region, as well as programs from the oldest public aquarium west of the Mississippi River—the Waikiki Aquarium. Lessons will include topics such as humpback whale biology and coral reef ecosystems.
While geared towards school teachers in Hawaiʻi and American Samoa, the webinar is open to all interested members of the public.
