Tiffany Risch (TAS 2008) from Rhode Island and Jillian Worssam (TAS 2008) from Arizona were selected to participate in the Maury Project from July 9 – July 20, 2012 at the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland. This two-week workshop is designed for master precollege teachers and supervisors of science who teach or supervise the teaching of units with significant oceanography content. This intensive workshop includes lectures, tutorials, seminars, research cruises, hands-on laboratory exercises, and field trips. Faculty members from the USNA, Navy, NOAA, and other scientists, and science educators present the workshop topics. Congratulations Tiffany and Jillian!
