Robin Hehn, a teacher at Columbus High School, is attending the 21st annual session of the distinguished Maury Project Workshop offered by the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md. Hehn is one of 24 teachers from around the country attending the workshop July 6-18.
The Maury Project is designed to give science teachers and science supervisors an in-depth study of various oceanographic and meteorological subjects including waves, tides, density and wind-driven oceanographic circulations and ocean-atmosphere interactions. The workshop equips teachers with training and teaching materials that can be used in their classrooms. They will participate in lectures, tutorials, research cruises, hands-on laboratory exercises and field trips.
