Catch the SEACOOS Wave!

Thanks to the combined efforts of the South East Coastal Ocean Observation System (SEACOOS), Georgia Sea Grant and the University of Georgia Marine Extension Service, The SouthEast Center for Ocean Sciences Education Excellence (SECOSEE) has 1,000 wave posters to distribute to Georgia Schools! This poster supports the SEACOOS virtual waves classroom, which can be found on the SEACOOS website. On this website, you will find classroom activities, real time wave information, wave vocabulary and a waves fact sheet. The 36 inch by 32 inch, four-color poster, Making Waves, will be mailed in quantities of 3-5 to Georgia schools (as long as the supply lasts). No single copy requests please! Email your request for posters to Margaret Olsen, SECOSEE Education Specialist. Be sure to include the name and complete address of your school.
