Hello! My name is Barb Ratzburg and I am currently an education student at the University of British Columbia. I just spent ten weeks doing an in-class practicum with a fantastic group of grade twos in North Vancouver. For the next three weeks I will be interning with Ocean Networks Canada in the next stage of my adventurous journey to becoming a teacher. I can't wait to see what kinds of projects I will be given the opportunity to work on during my stay.
Even though this is only the beginning of the first week that I will be at ONC I can tell that there is a lot of information for me to work with in my quest to make ocean science a more accessible and approachable topic for teachers. I can't wait to learn more about the different types of technology that ONC uses for researching and exploring the ocean. I am excited to spend the next three weeks here and use my passion for the ocean to share ONC's research with teachers and students across BC (and hopefully even further!).
