Marine Technology Summer Camp
In an effort to increase the ability for undergraduate students to use marine equipment/technologies, the Marine Technology Society (MTS) is partnering with Northwestern Michigan College to offer a one week summer "camp".

During this week, students will have the opportunity to use first hand a variety of technologies, log ship time on research vessels conducting research using the technologies, and learning about several applications of the technologies. This program is not just for engineering/technology majors, this experience is designed to welcome students of all disciplines potentially interested in using these technologies in their careers.

There is more information and flyer about the program: https://www.nmc.edu/marine-tech-camp

US Sailing has a STEM program called REACH.
REACH Initiative: "Join the 400+ programs taking part in US Sailing’s Reach Initiative, utilizing sailing as an educational platform, challenging youth to embrace education, establishing a love of learning while exploring productive Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM)"

Youtube video for REACH: https://youtu.be/xPxZG1Nh31w
http://reach.ussailing.org/
Course prerequisites: http://www1.ussailing.org/Enrollment/ViewPrereq.aspx

REACH has environmental components too as there are modules that focus on marine debris and water quality.
There's an instructor course coming up next Wed. Feb 3 in San Diego. The course teaches you how to implement the program using inquiry based learning and engineering by design. I thought some of you or some of your keen students/interns might be interested. You do not have to be a sailor to take the course! (See the link above for course prerequisites.)

Wednesday, February 3rd 8:30am – 3:30pm
Reach – STEM Educator Course
The STEM Educator Course: Middle School I is an 8 hour professional development/training, materials, and a personal copy of the 132 page Reach Educator Guide for Middle School Modules 1-10 (retail $59.95). Educators should bring a bagged lunch. Upon completion attendees will receive a US Sailing STEM Educator Course certificate and formal educators will receive a certificate for professional development hours.
$150 course fee

Lastly, I have scholarship money for one person to take the course + $50 stipend for gas/food. I am looking to give the scholarship to an intern type person who would want to help out with Westwind's REACH program. We run a hybrid homeschool program during the year where students come to the sailing center 2 x per week to do REACH / STEM projects and go boating as part of their curriculum. We also incorporate REACH modules into our summer youth day camp programs. I appreciate if you could please pass on the word. And feel free to contact me: e mail, phone, text!

Please share these with your students and if they are interested, have them contact IFE directly using the information in the email and attachments. Thank you!

Also, keep in mind that the 2011 MATE Internship applications are due March 28 if you have students planning to apply. The E/V Nautilus will be hosting two interns again this year, and we have other incredible opportunities for this summer.

The super agency NOAA that we all use constantly in our everyday maritime lives, is recruiting Marine Science Techs. Lt.Cdr. Fischel, who also races his J 24 from Dana Point harbor, would love to talk with students about careers with NOAA, and also entry-level jobs that they offer that may lead to other exciting opportunities later.

As we know, NOAA is responsible for vast and diverse areas such as fisheries, weather, hydrography and bathymetry as well as marine protection and conservation, and this just begins to cover what they do. A lot of their effort is seagoing and it has become increasingly difficult to recruit talent in seagoing services. This is where you guys become so important to them. You are already obviously interested in going to sea, developing your skills in seamanship, and for many of you, including the other marine sciences in your backgrounds as well. For one thing, understanding how the oceans work makes you a better sailor. And a good salary for doing what you love to do should be interesting too.

Specifically, what Lt.Cdr. Fischel said they are looking for are Marine Science Techs who understand the worlds of both science and seamanship, and can work in a coordinating role between the scientists and ship's crew. And it pays well. And there are many other jobs available too.

This listing of opportunities is fantastic. Although I use my Saddleback MST training very often in my marine electrician business, I was never aware of the number of opportunities available elsewhere in the field.

Also: The experience I got in the program was invaluable and makes me much more effective in my business.

This is just one example. I occasionally move customers boats from shipyard to marina in LA because often I feel more comfortable operating the vessel than it's new owner. I don't have my master's license so I don't charge for moving the vessel. My reputation is enhanced with the customer and, as the customer does not run his boat into the rocks or the dock so my part of the job goes forward. All the time I spent practicing close quarters maneuvers with a heavy boat like Pilgrimage was well worth it.

One of the most important roles of Community College academic programs is training students for employment in the real world. You may have noticed that most "sailing" programs at other colleges have been moved to "recreational" areas of "community services" at a considerable increase in price and decrease in applicability as a work training situation.
Making the case for this program has always been a difficult battle. There are two ways we can show that we are succeeding; one is for you all to work toward and apply for the certificate and the other is to document those graduates who have become employed in the marine sciences. Seamanship IS a marine science.
I will begin a list of those who are graduates [meaning that have taken the MST classes], those who have received the certificate, and those who are employed in the field. I am not sure how this will be organized but I will appreciate any help you all can give.
