NOAA’s (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) offers a ‘Teacher at Sea Program’ professional development for educators during the summer months. The educators spent two weeks on the ship Rainer learning about sound and conducting hydrographic surveys of the ocean bottom. The article describes how one educator incorporated her learning experiences and transformed them into activities applicable for her fifth grade students. This is another example of how teachers engaging in real research adapt it to student learning.
