Boulder, Colo. – WEBWIRE

Sharks fascinate learners of all ages. With interactive educational tools, including underwater videos shot and narrated by our own scientists, we’ve created a course that will engage and educate students on the truth about sharks, and foster deeper understanding about marine science.

Ocean First Education, offering standards-based online marine science education, will introduce a captivating new shark course at the NABT (National Association of Biology Teachers) conference next week (Nov. 11—14) in Providence, Rhode Island. Ocean First Education will exhibit its new course, “The Truth about Sharks,” along with its array of marine science programs, from “Ocean Literacy” to “Sea Turtle Ecology,” in booth 214.

“The Truth about Sharks” course investigates shark history and biology, interactions, misconceptions and conservation to help foster greater understanding about an often misunderstood species. The seven-chapter course offering includes exclusive videos, high-definition images, a student guide, interactives, online assessment and offline activities, and aligns with Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). The course is designed for middle grade to adult learners. 

“Among the greatest challenges educators face today are getting students interested, focused and engaged in the learning process, but introducing critical STEM concepts through topics of interest can help,” said Cyndi Long, chief operating officer and director of education for Ocean First Education. “Sharks fascinate learners of all ages. With interactive educational tools, including underwater videos shot and narrated by our own scientists, we’ve created a course that will engage and educate students on the truth about sharks, and foster deeper understanding about marine science.”
