Marine Science On The Internet

It is our hope that this web site is used as a springboard to marine science on the internet, and to assist you in using and expanding upon the MARE curriculum.  Use Student Resources for web-based classroom inquiry.  Students can learn about on-going research, look up background information, and play marine science games.  Teacher Resources provides information for planning field trips, lists marine artifacts available for use in the classroom, links to on-line photo and curriculum resources, presents an alignment of MARE to state science, math and language arts standards, and has a bulletin board where teachers can share ideas.  Community Resources links to local agencies and organizations involved in coastal and marine science, management and interpretation.  Look at these links for calendars and suggestions for family outings and exploration.  If you have other related links you would like included, please send the information to Sharon R. or call Millicoma Intermediate School.
