Florida Gulf Coast University Hosts Next Presentation Boot Camp
September 27-28, 2014
Over 400 ocean scientists have graduated from a Presentation Boot Camp (PBC) sponsored by COSEE Florida. It’s not too late to join their ranks. Our next PBC will be held on September 27-28 at Florida Gulf Coast University (Ft. Myers, Florida). During the intensive two-day workshop you'll receive training in planning and preparing presentations that communicate messages more clearly and effectively and have a lasting impact on the audience. Topics include: identifying the needs of the audience, highlighting big ideas and take-home messages, decoding complex concepts with diagrams, and displaying data in meaningful ways. You'll also receive training in the use and application of a protocol for evaluating the effectiveness of scientific presentations.

interested in ocean science education. GrOE is sponsored by COSEE OCEAN, one of 15 Centers for Ocean Science Education Excellence. Find Us On Facebook. . .
The 2014 Research Experience for Per-Service Teachers (REPT) Program began on Monday May 12th at IRSC with all the interns and mentors gathering to meet. This is the fourth year of the program and we've partnered with 2 new schools, Edison State College and Broward College. We have 8 interns participating from the 3 Colleges and being mentored at one of 5 different institutions: Smithsonian Marine Station at Fort Pierce, Florida Organic Aquaculture, Florida Oceanographic Society, Oceanographic Center at Nova Southeastern University, and Sanibel Captiva Conservation Foundation. Each intern is partnered with a marine scientist to conduct a research project over the 7-week long program. The students will gain hands-on research experience, gain confidence to take what they've learned to the classroom and also learn new strategies and techniques to translate their experience to
students in the classroom. Read More About This Program. . .
