A Model Marine Science Laboratory, North Kitsap Marine Environmental Center.
Driscoll, Andrew L.; And Others
The project had two overall goals: (1) to establish and maintain a model marine science facility to be used as a teaching station and a base for research; and (2) to increase student and public awareness about the oceans and the important role they will play in man's future. The project served all the school districts in Kitsap County (Washington) and more than 8,000 students from all grade levels participated. The report discusses the context in which the project was developed, provides a program description and budget statement, and outlines the procedures used in organization and instruction. Also included is a detailed discussion of an evaluation of the program, which indicated that students did significantly gain in their knowledge about the sea and the people who work with it. The report concludes with recommendations for the future, and an appendix which provides a sample of activities and materials used in the marine science instructional program. This work was prepared under an ESEA Title III contract. (JR)
