Science from a Distance: 2019-2020 Educator Science Café Series

Join the South Carolina Sea Grant Consortium and Patriots Point Naval and Maritime Museum for the three-part 2019-2020 Educator Science Café Series.

This year, you can come get up close and personal with scientists who do their work from a distance. Whether studying the climates of millennia past, tagging migratory animals, or mapping the depths of the ocean, these scientists have chosen subjects that can be spatially challenging. For just $10, enjoy conversations with local scientists and experts, heavy appetizers, and be eligible for prizes and giveaways.

  • Somewhere Beyond the Sea – December 5, 2019: What challenges do ocean scientists face when studying such a complex system?
  • Where Did You Come From, Where Did You Go – January 23, 2020: How do researchers study challenging topics? What technologies are utilized in animal tagging?
  • (They Long to Be) Close to You – February 27, 2020: Why do we need to study difficult subjects? What can we learn from these systems?
