Ocean Literacy Conference part 1


I was recently invited along with my buddy Steve to attend a marine educators conference at Plymouth University. The conference has been organised by the Marine Biological Association and European Marine Science Educators Association.
The first two days of the conference were a fascinating mixture of speakers about the marine environment and marine education. There were also workshops too.
Some of the delegates provided posters of their work and the delegates could look at these during breaks and lunch (the lunch was delicious).
My buddy Steve made a poster of my journeys called One World One Ocean a Cross curriculum approach.

On the evening of the second day, delegates could go to the conference dinner which was held at the Plymouth Aquarium. Before dinner we had a tour of the aquarium.
