UNH Marine Docents Hold Education Opportunity Fair March 6
March 5, 2008
The UNH Marine Docents will hold a marine education opportunity fair at the Newington Town Hall Thursday, March 6, from 3:30 – 6:30 p.m. The fair will provide a chance for teachers, school administrators and others to talk to Marine Docents and find out what programs they have to offer for students and educators.
The Marine Docents lead various boat-based educational programs, such as the Coastal Floating Lab and Discovery Cruises, where students can learn about their outdoor environment through hands-on teaching. Docents also help teach school-based SeaTrek presentations on topics ranging from plate tectonics and salt marshes to lobsters and seaweed. Representatives of other marine education organizations will be available to answer questions. Refreshments and door prizes will be handed out and the Docents will also hold a raffle.
The Newington Town Hall is located at 205 Nimble Hill Road, Newington. For more information, visit the Marine Docent website at http://www.unh.edu/marine-education/ or contact Mark Wiley at 603-749-1565 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
