Join scientists as they dive to the mid-ocean ridge thousands of meters deep. Explore towering underwater volcanoes, black smokers, and bizarre creatures that live there.
Germantown Elementary Schoolin Germantown, Illinois has begun adapting its curriculum to include units of study placed on the Internet. These pages are excellent examples of how teachers and students can both increase education resources using the Internet.
Marine Advanced Technology Education Center
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.
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.
