Founded in 1983, Southeastern New England Marine Educators (SENEME) is a professional association of individuals and organizations devoted to the cause of marine education in Connecticut and Rhode Island. SENEME is a regional chapter of the National Marine Educators Association (NMEA), an organization that brings together those interested in the study and enjoyment of the world of water, both fresh and salt.
SENEME publishes The Nauplius, a newsletter featuring bulletins about national, state and regional conferences and workshops, as well as teaching aids and classroom resource lists. We also offer workshops, an annual conference, and field trips to diverse marine ecosystems throughout our region.
SENEME is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
You will become the students as you work in teams to engineer a prototype aquaponics system. Construct an aquatic flow system balance water inputs and outputs through a series of components, and understand the dynamic forces that work to keep fish and plants flourishing in an aquaponics system, while making connections with nutrient cycles. As you design and build you’ll be incorporating the Engineering Core Ideas in NGSS, and you’ll see how easy it can be to have students solve real-world problems through engineering.
In addition, SENEME will hold the Annual Meeting to discuss the past, present, and future of our organization! Light appetizers will be served. All are welcome!
Afterwards, join us for an informal dinner at Breakwater Restaurant.
