Title Maury Project 2012 Annual Report.
Publication Date Sep 2012
Media Count 6p
Personal Author J. A. Brey
Abstract The Maury Project is an oceanography-based, graduate-level, teacher professional development program designed to promote the scientific literacy of young people by improving the background of pre-college teachers on the physical foundations of oceanography. This is accomplished through a process of training the trainers at a two-week workshop held at the U.S. Naval Academy and subsequently via single-topic modules that Maury peer trainers present in sessions throughout the United States. By increasing the scientific knowledge of teachers, the Maury Project is ultimately directed towards attracting precollege students, including underrepresented minorities, to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics studies. This is in close alignment with the ONR mission to nurture the next generations of researchers for the future of the Navy and Marine Corps.
