MARGINS has been awarded an NSF Course, Curriculum, and Laboratory Improvement (CCLI) grant to bring MARGINS research into widespread use in undergraduate teaching in ways that showcase the integrated, multidisciplinary approach that is characteristic of modern, front-line geoscience research. In collaboration with the Science Education Resource Center (SERC) at Carleton College, the project is developing a web-based collection of teaching materials referred to as “Mini-Lessons” (http://serc.carleton.edu/margins). Mini-Lessons range in scope from something as simple as the use of MARGINS science to illustrate a lecture to multi-day lab projects that capitalize on the MARGINS Data Repository. An exciting aspect of this work is a collaboration with Don Reed at San Jose State University to create virtual expeditions for use with introductory students.
