The Mid-Atlantic Marine Education Association (MAMEA) invites you to join us at the University of North Carolina in Wilmington, where we'll be "Taking Marine Education By Storm" July 20-24, 2003. MAMEA is hosting the annual conference of the National Marine Educators Association, a gathering of hundreds of K-12 classroom teachers, university faculty, museum and aquarium educators, and scientists who enjoy teaching about the world of water.
More than 150 concurrent sessions will feature themes such as Climate and Weather, Technology in Ocean Sciences Education, Elementary Education, and Maritime Heritage. Keynote speaker Dr. Steve Lyons from The Weather Channel will describe the challenges facing scientists who predict and track storms. Well-known North Carolina researchers including Dr. Stan Riggs of Eastern Carolina University will provide additional presentations on coastal geology and physical processes.
