Oregon Coast Education Program Workshops

The Oregon Coast Education Program (OCEP) is offering a multi-day workshop in Charleston, Oregon this summer. This workshop is for teachers from around Oregon who are interested in teaching more about the ocean, and who want to incorporate more watershed and coastal field experiences into their teaching.

Come to the coast this summer to learn about how the Oregon Coast Education Program (OCEP) can support you and your students with best practices in coastal and marine education! Educators will take part in an in-depth experience to explore the practice of science in a diversity of coastal habitats in Charleston. Topics include coastal ecology and habitats, impacts and solutions, climate change, working with data sets and making connections to the Next Generation Science Standards. Workshop includes materials, meals, and 3 nights of dorm-style lodging.
