GHS teacher attends oceanography training at Naval Academy

Jared S. Foro, a teacher at Guilderland High School, was one of 24 teachers from across the country selected to attend the 25th annual session of the Maury Project Workshop offered by the United States Naval Academy in July.

The Maury Project is designed to give science teachers and science supervisors an in-depth study of various oceanographic and meteorological subjects including waves, tides, density, and wind-driven oceanographic circulations and ocean-atmosphere interactions. The workshop equips teachers with training and teaching materials that can be used in their classrooms. They will participate in lectures, tutorials, research cruises, hands-on laboratory exercises and field trips.

The Maury Project Workshop is named in honor of Navy Lt. Matthew Fontaine Maury, who lived from 1806 until 1873 and is considered to be the founder of physical oceanography.
