Dr. Mark Borrelli
Mapping Storm Tide Pathways: Coastal Storms, Sea Level Rise and Emergency Response
Mark is the Director of the Coastal Processes and Ecosystems Lab (CaPE Lab), a joint research lab between the Center for Coastal Studies in Provincetown and the University of Massachusetts, Boston. Using the recent and ongoing mapping of storm tide pathways we will examine the scientific method, the idea of uncertainty, coastal storms and sea level rise. As educators in a coastal state we need to be well-versed in these areas and provide our students with the relevant information to engage and inspire them to become informed members of society, a society that will continue to be profoundly impacted by climate change.

Sheri White
The Ocean Observatories Initiative (OOI): Collecting Long-Term Coastal and Global Time Series Data
Sheri is a senior engineer in the Applied Ocean Physics and Engineering Department at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. This talk will introduce us to the Ocean Observatories Initiative, including the platforms and instruments that are deployed in the coastal and global oceans, and how quality data is provided to the scientific community and the public.

Choose two afternoon workshops from a suite of options. All workshops will include classroom-ready activities that are grade-specific and can be tied to standards. These workshops are designed to help you implement the Massachusetts Science, Technology, and Engineering Standards, with a particular focus on using regionally relevant models and data in the classroom. Please go to MME Website for descriptions of the afternoon workshops. You will be able to sign up for workshops on the day of the conference.

Workshops - Session I: 1:00-1:45
Workshops - Session II: 1:55-2:40
Tours 2:50
