Miriam Sutton: Teacher at Sea

Miriam Sutton, a North Carolina middle school teacher, participated in the C-MORE/ OPEREX research cruise as a Teacher at Sea.

During thNOAA TAS Imagee cruise, she provided communication and developed educational activities that assisted teachers and scientists in bringing the research project into the classroom. Her main objectives were to establish an online blog to communicate with teachers and students while at sea; develop simplified experiments that link the cruise activities to the classroom; interact and assist scientists with their research projects; and generate photo/video documentation of the research cruise.

Miriam posted a blog with images (click on the small versions to see the full versions) on this page about her experiences at sea. Feel free to email her your questions and comments. Also, as part of the Hanauma Bay Education Program, Miriam gave a presentation on Thursday, August 14, 2009, in the Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve theater about her experience.
