Release of the 6th Teaching and Learning Module, entitled ‘Nature of Science’
DEEPEND is proud to announce the release of its 6th Teaching and Learning Module, entitled ‘Nature of Science’ .
This 45-page document (click to download), intended for grades 6-12, clearly describes the scientific method and uses DEEPEND research data in examples. We hope that 6-12th grade educators will find this useful in guiding their students’ research education. The module’s author, Dr. Denise Kendall, has done an amazing job creating the six modules for DEEPEND, helping students and teachers learn about both science in general and DEEPEND oceanographic research in particular.
DEEPEND featured all week long on the Oregon Coast Aquarium’s Oceanscape Network
CREEP INTO THE DEEPEND, YEAR 3: The deep is by far the largest affected habitat from the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Join diverse scientists as they continue their long-term investigation on impacts of this environmental disaster on the deep-sea from December 4 to 8, 2017.
Creep Into the DEEPEND is a WhaleTimes, Inc. Virtual Research Mission, in cooperation with the DEEPEND Consortium and the Oceanscape Network. For more information visit whaletimes.org

DEEPEND display booth at their Sea Life Facility
Texas A&M University has created a DEEPEND display booth at their Sea Life Facility. This booth allows visitors to learn about deep-sea and epipelagic research through posters, interactive educational games, and educational information hand-outs. Hundreds of visitors (including grade school children, senior citizen groups, new students and parents, undergraduate and graduate students) get to view and interact with the DEEPEND booth each year.
Master's Monday Blog Series
DEEPEND Starts the Master’s Monday Blog Series
We are beginning a blog series which will feature DEEPEND Master’s students and their thesis’ projects. Every other Monday we will post a new blog from one of our graduate students describing their research and what they have found thus far. The blogs will have exciting images related to their work from the field or in the lab. Our very first Master’s student to post a blog was Kristine Clark, a Master’s student at the University of South Florida St. Petersburg, who works on heteropods. What is a heteropod? Find out here!
Today we are featuring our second Master’s student blog by Sebastian Velez, a student at Wilkes Honors College of Florida Atlantic University in Jupiter, FL. Sebastian studies juvenile snappers and groupers found way offshore! Read all about his work here.
