NYSG partnered with the New York State Marine Education Association (NYSMEA) to re-launch the Association’s Web site, www.nysmea.org. NYSMEA, which includes educators from all levels, promotes marine awareness and encourages the growth and exchange of instructional resources within the scientific, commercial, and educational communities.
The redesign offers teachers a more interactive experience, one that better connects them together throughout the State. Visitors can now easily become members, find more on upcoming events and sign up to receive alerts from NYSMEA’s Strandline newsletter.
“The site is a valuable resource for New York teachers, featuring lesson plans, field trip destinations, job opportunities, and much, much more,” says Larissa Graham, NYSG’s Long Island Sound Study Outreach Coordinator.
Graham is a recent recipient of the 2010 Science Council of New York City (SCONYC) Jerry Resnick Memorial Presidential Award. She was nominated for the award by NYSMEA, a SCONYC-member association she has worked closely with for several years.
"The launch of the new NYSMEA Web site demonstrates the increasing collaboration between NYSMEA and New York Sea Grant in the marine education arena,” says NYSG Director James Ammerman.
