Sea Turtle Exploration Workshop

The Mid-Atlantic Marine Education Association invites educators to join the North Carolina Regional Conference on October 14, 2023. We will be hosted by The North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher, and participating in a Sea Turtle Exploration: a curriculum to help educators engage students in the fundamentals of STEAM through ready-to-use, standards based lesson plans and sea turtles. Join us for a hands-on teacher workshop guiding you through sea turtle curriculum and website. 

Aligned with the new Common Core standards, your class will be able to “adopt” a turtle and learn about its care and growth. By adopting our sea turtle you will receive updates with information including the turtle’s current weight and length. Each class will also receive a certificate of participation.

By the end of the workshop, you will be familiar with the website and curriculum and how to implement the lessons in your own classroom. The workshop will include a behind the scenes tour to meet one of our sea turtles. Please bring a reusable water bottle, lunch will be provided. This workshop will count towards NC Environmental Education Certification (Criteria I) and consists of 6 contact hours that may count toward CEUs for teachers.
