STEM Learning through tsunamis - The Coastal Engineering Design and Watershed and Invasive Species Education (WISE) Education Module uses Ocean Science Systems as pathways to stimulate STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) learning to guide students in decision making. Students immerse themselves in STEM through understanding the causes and consequences of a natural disaster such as a tsunami or bioinvasion, learn about their risks and explore choices and consequences of responses to and preparation for tsunami hazards.
K-12 Water Wits curriculum, sponsored by the Oregon State Marine Board, encourages awareness and responsible use of aquatic and marine resources and goes beyond traditional boating and water safety education to include stewardship messages and scientific principles. The program is designed to be interdisciplinary, academically rigorous, interactive and student-led.
