Teacher at Sea, Brett Hoyt, and Principal Investigator, Bob Weller, on the STRATUS cruise.

Mr. Hoyts’ personal statement about the experience included:
The Teacher at Sea’s program goal is stated as “It is NOAA’s desire that the logs, lesson plans, and workshops/presentations you create as a result of this experience will help foster a better understanding of our ocean planet among you, your students, and your colleagues.”

I feel that with the support of NOAA, Woods Hole Institute, and CICOR that this mission statement has been fully achieved. I have been able to add “Ocean Awareness” to my student’s view of the world. Because of my experience with TAS I am able to share real experiences which helps make science come alive for my students. I will be presenting a Teacher at Sea sectional at the upcoming statewide teacher convention and look forward to encouraging many other teachers to participate in this incredible experience. I have become a strong advocate for not only the TAS program but for NOAA and WHOI as well. I encourage my students to consider a career in science and use the above-mentioned institutions, in conjunction with my TAS photos, to highlight what real scientists doing real science actually look like.

The impact upon the students and professionals I work with will last years past the three short weeks of my TAS experience and has provided me with an experience of a lifetime.
