Terrebonne Parish Nautical Science Program Curriculum.
Louisiana State Univ., Baton Rouge. Center for Wetland Resources.
The curriculum presented in this document was created through the auspices of Louisiana State University's Center for Wetland Resources. Need for a program to train qualified personnel for the transportation segment of the mineral and oil industry was shown by a shortage of skilled workers. With the cooperation of a local high school, a one-year nautical science program was devised. Initial participation involved 27 students. Outlines appearing in the curriculum guide list topics for a two-year, 11th and 12th grade, program on marine transportation. The use of guest speakers and field trips is advocated. Bibliographies are included for those wishing additional information on topics covered. (NTIS/CP)
