CPO’s Stanitski featured in new ‘JASON Learning’ middle school curriculum

Diane Stanitski and her husband, CAPT John Adler (NOAA Corps) with JASON Argonauts.

A new climate curriculum for middle school called, "Climate: Seas of Change" was released last week as part of JASON Learning (formerly The JASON Project).  Diane Stanitski of NOAA's Climate Program Office is highlighted as a NOAA Host Researcher in Chapter 2 of the textbook entitled, Climate Connections: Drift and Flow. The NOAA Adopt a Drifter Program and the global ocean observing system are also featured.

Stanitski and CAPT John Adler, NOAA Corps, are presented in the curriculum as the first husband-wife science team for JASON. Together, they led a student and teacher expedition off the coast of California to deploy drifting buoys and AUVs to launch the JASON climate mission. Stanitski and Adler gave a keynote presentation on June 28 at the Annual JASON Educators Conference in Ashburn, Virginia.  They also co-presented climate and technology activities at two breakout sessions during the conference.
