Below are comments from individuals who attended the seminar:

  • "As a former marine geologist that went on oceanic campaigns, I am very glad that you offered this seminar. I think continuing education webinars like this one are necessary to give more resources to teachers so they can pass this knowledge on to their students."
  • "Great job. I taught oceanography for first time last year and I used some of their resources. Happy to learn about the latest tech."
  • "I enjoyed the most when they presented how they collect the data from the ocean and share the information to the world. I think that’s pretty cool. I love how Susan and Mike answer the questions that related to education."
  • "I think pausing for questions halfway through was very beneficial! I also really enjoyed learning about current and new technologies being researched and utilized."
