A-STEP is joining School of Rock for a 10 day professional development workshop primarily aimed at K-12 educators and pre-service teachers. School of Rock is usually held on board the JOIDES Resolution (JR) scientific ocean drill ship when available during transits or tie-ups. In 2020 the School of Rock workshop will likely be land-based and scheduled in late summer associated with a port call of the ship.
STEMSEAS expeditions are ship-based, 6-10 day exploratory experiences primarily for undergraduates from diverse backgrounds aboard NSF-funded research vessels. Students sail with experienced faculty mentors and engage in geoscience and oceanography activities (while also having fun)! A-STEP Fellows aboard these expeditions will integrate with the group while having slightly different, science communication responsibilities. Applications for these cruises can be submitted through the STEMSEAS application portal by March 31, 2020.
