Come join us this summer/fall on board the JOIDES Resolution 6 August - 6 October, 2016 as we seek to better understand the seismic forces that created the devastating earthquake and tsunami in this Indian Ocean region in 2004. Our education program will focus on this exploration, the nature and process of science, and careers.
Since March 2009, live ship-to-shore conferences from the JOIDES Resolution (the JR, the nation's scientific ocean drilling ship) have inspired thousands of students, teachers, and museum visitors. Our live video events lift science out of the textbooks and allow students to learn about cutting edge research and careers by talking directly to scientists, technicians, and crew as they live and work aboard the vessel.
Requests for interactive, 30-45-minute Zoom interactions are handled on a first come, first served basis. To participate successfully in one of our events, you need:
- a computer with "Zoom" a free, quick downloadable program
- a good internet connection
- a video projector
- a good webcam, with microphone (or separated microphone)
- speakers, if your room/group is large
