I have a master's degree in biological oceanography in a multidisciplinary program centered around marine, earth, and atmospheric processes and their interconnection. I also have a bachelor's degree in environmental studies. I also completed a semester-long project in weather forecasting with a local news station. I have also spent the past ten years teaching and designing courses in environmental science to students of all ages in a variety of different settings. These settings range from outdoor education programs, museums, and formal classrooms. I have also experienced multiple hurricanes and their effects growing up along the eastern shore of the United States.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
