ECOGIG marine scientists from Temple University talk about the tools they use to collect information about deep water ecosystems.Here, a student drives a model ROV (remotely operated vehicle) at the 2017 Philadelphia Science Carnival. ECOGIG outreach staff and graduate students visited Trip Elementary in Grayson, GA to share the Ocean Discovery Zone with students and families at their 2017 family STEM night. And what better way to do that but in a fun and light-hearted atmosphere where people of all ages gather for a good time.Quaternary history of mammals and first appearance of man.

The RECOVER team is ready to have a good time sharing their science about mahi-mahi and red fish at the Rock the Ocean’s Tortuga Music Festival on Ft Lauderdale Beach, FL.
The three-day music festival designates an area dubbed “Conservation Village” for attendees to learn about important marine issues and how they can help. The ECOGIG Ocean Discovery Zone provides activity stations that give information about the oil spill and healthy ocean ecosystems.
Practical : 2h/W, 1h/W Invertebrate macropaleontological course includes; Introduction, definitions, zoological nomenclature, how fossils are formed and preserved, explanation of geologic time, how fossils are used in paleoecology and evolution, collecting and preparing fossils, trace fossils, how to identify fossils.
Systematic study of invertebrate macrofossil Phyla: Porifera, Cnidaria, Bryozoa, Brachiopoda, Annelida, Mollusca, Echinodermata and Arthropoda.
