MATE is a national consortium of educational institutions and organizations seeking to improve marine technology education and to prepare our marine technicians for the complex, technologically advanced, workplace of today and tomorrow.

blue box bullet  New Millenium Observatory
NeMO is a seafloor observatory at an active underwater volcano, Axial Seamount. A volcanic eruption occured at Axial in January 1998, destroying some hydrothermal vent sites and creating new ones. Since then NeMO scientists have been assessing the impact of the eruption and documenting the on-going changes in Axial's summit caldera. Through the site, you can access fly-through movies, virtual-reality panoramas, and video clips from 6 sites located in Axial's summit caldera. Also available are new curriculum materials based on NeMO research.
