Please join us on October 15 for a very special program by Dr. Teresa Greeley to explain why the ocean matters to each of us. Given that we’re surrounded by water and many of us choose to live here because of that fact, let’s learn how our oceans impact us in every facet of our lives from our health to our every day experiences.
Dr. Greeley will also explain how the University of South Florida’s College of Marine Sciences has made the commitment to embrace girls and young women by engaging their curiosity and passion for the sciences. These programs teach all about the ocean, it’s inhabitants, it’s impact on our lives, and how they can make positive contributions to it’s preservation for future generations.
After earning her BA in Natural Sciences and an MA in Marine Science, Dr. Greely successfully completed a PhD in Science Education. She has a passion for teaching-especially girls and women-about the ocean and ocean literacy. She is also the coordinator of four community engagement programs that teach graduate STEM students hot to teach others about the ocean.
Some of her most memorable project have been the IMAX film, “Volcanoes of the Deep Sea”, a live TV series, “Project Oceanography”, and she has had the opportunity to meet and study penguins in the Southern Ocean. She truly hopes to inspire and educate the next generation of scientists and enducators, and encourages each of us to be a “citizen scientist”.
