Valerie Bogan (TAS 2012) Presents at Hoosier Association of Science Teachers Conference

Valerie Bogan (TAS 2012) presented at the 42nd Annual Hoosier Association of Science Teachers (HASTI) Conference for Professional Development in Indianapolis, Indiana on February 6-8, 2013. Ms. Bogan presented information about the Teacher at Sea Program and her experience to educators from all grade levels. 

She also presented hands-on activities that she developed after her TAS experience, specifically a freshwater chemistry lab that allows students who aren’t located on the coast to do the same sort of tests they do on a ship, but on fresh water. Ms. Bogan said, “This type of activity helps to make the NOAA TAS trip real for students who haven’t even seen the ocean.”
