The Marine Advanced Technology Education (MATE) Center, a national consortium of educational institutions and organizations dedicated to improving marine technology education, will be hosting a summer institute sponsored by the National Science Foundation July 28 - 31, 1999 at California State University at Monterey Bay, Seaside, California. Community college, four-year college, and high school instructors in chemistry, computer science, electronics, English, industrial technology, mathematics, and marine and oceanographic sciences are invited to attend. The institute constitutes four days of professional development during which instructors will gain a deeper understanding of emerging technologies in marine fields and use that information to develop new and exciting curriculum for their own use.
The goals of the summer institute are for instructors to work with technical experts from industry and research organizations to:
- Experience and understand the type of work that marine technicians do now and in the future
- Experience and understand the types of emerging technologies used and their general application in the marine environment
- Create interdisciplinary technology-rich curriculum modules that address real-world marine problems.
