Summary:The Maury Project is a teacher professional development course with a two-week summer residence workshop in Annapolis, MD, focused on the fundamentals of oceanography. It is offered by the American Meteorological Society Education Program in partnership with California University of Pennsylvania (Cal U), and with funding from the U.S. Navy. This course focuses on improving teacher effectiveness in generating interest and understanding in science, technology, and mathematics among precollege students. The project is named after Matthew Fontaine Maury, considered by many as the father of oceanography. Workshops take place each summer and include lectures, hands on activities, and valuable field experience. Participants receive a stipend, lodging, meals, travel funds, and instructional materials, and must be prepared to pay the Cal U academic support fee (see website for details). Three tuition-free graduate credits are earned following successful completion of the summer course requirements including required peer-training sessions. Workshop applications are accepted in the late fall and winter with an application deadline in the early spring.
