Finding Your Way: Navigation at Sea
with Treworgy Planetarium Supervisor, Brian Koehler & Associate Director of School and Family Programs, Barb Jarnagin
DEC 14 6:00 PM Mystic Seaport
Last year, the Mystic Seaport Museum hosted an exhibit called, "Ships, Clocks, and Stars: The Quest for Longitude". On loan from the Royal Maritime Museum in Greenwich, England, the exhibit allowed us to tell the story of maritime navigation like never before.
While the exhibit has moved on, the opportunity to teach navigation remains, and the Museum's Education Department has designed two new on-site programs for school groups — "Explorers and Navigators" for grades 2-4, and "Finding Our Way: Navigation at Sea" for grades 5-12.
This workshop will introduce teachers to each program, before allowing them to experience a hybrid combination of elements from both. Teachers will experience activities including chartwork, taking a compass bearing, determining speed using a chip log, and measuring angles using a sextant.
To RSVP to find out more information, please contact Krystal Rose: firstname.lastname@example.org or 860.572.0711 ext. 5025.
Conferences and Workshops
The CEA RA, held each May, is CEA's highest policy-making body. During two days of business, approximately 500 delegates take action to decide Association policies, including adopting amendments to the CEA RA Standing Rules, the CEA Constitution and Bylaws, approving revisions to the CEA Resolutions, and voting on new business items.
The RA is convened every July during the Annual Meeting. The first two days are devoted to discussions, conferences, and exhibits-but the highlight is the Representative Assembly itself. During this important event, delegates debate issues that impact American public education, elect top officers, and set policy for the 3.2 million-member Association.
