Registration is open for #NMEA14 - join us in Annapolis in July!

Posted By Lisa D. Tossey, Thursday, February 20, 2014

Registration for our 2014 conference is now open! Join us in historic Annapolis, Md., July 21-25 for great sessions, fun field trips, and incredible networking opportunities!

Our 2014 conference will focus on STEM and the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), but will also highlight a variety of other marine and aquatic topics. Keynote and plenary speakers will include Dr. Edith Widder, expert on bioluminescence, deep-sea exploration, and the giant squid, Dr. Michael Wysession, geophysicist and NGSS writing team leader, and Dr. Rita Colwell, biotechnology and public health researcher and former National Science Foundation director.

There will be over 100 sessions in tracks focusing on classroom and informal education, scientific research, administration, NGSS, education research and program evaluation, and arts and culture. There is also an optional "unconference" session on Friday for those who want extended professional development in a less formal setting involving discussions and on-the-fly sharing of the latest topics in education. Additionally, there will be field trips to look for fossils, snorkel, visit the monuments in D.C. and much more.

Scholarships are available to NMEA members, first-time attendees who represent and/or educate those underrepresented in science, and experts in traditional knowledge and rights as it relates to marine systems. The deadline for all scholarships is March 15.

Full registration is a complete package, which includes viewing the keynote and plenary speakers, entrance to the exhibit hall, all concurrent sessions, three lunches and snacks, and entrance to Monday's opening reception at the U.S. Naval Academy, Tuesday's evening event at the National Aquarium in Baltimore, and Wednesday's banquet and auction at the Loews Annapolis Hotel.

Full registration begins at just $395 for NMEA members and $445 for non-members through April 30!! Day registrations are also available. Register today!
