In responce to Brad Baldwin's request for educational materials....
Hi everyone,
Although many of the readers of the coral list likely havean interest in education, there are some other marine related lists that arespecifically dedicated to this which you may find helpful if you are notalready aware of them.I did not put theinformation in quotes but I have cut and pasted so that you would have theright info.These groups cover K-12 education, outreach,and college level teaching.

1.InformationExchange for Marine Educators provided with the support of NOAA's Office ofEducation and the NationalMarineProtectedAreasCenterto share information pertinent to the marine educator community. To subscribe to this distribution list, send a blank messageto requests at willamette.nos.noaa.gov with “subscribe infoexchange” in thesubject field.Similarly, to removeyourself from the list, send the subject “unsubscribe infoexchange”. 

2."Scuttlebutt",the Bridge discussion list, provides a forum for marine educators to talkinformally about marine education ideas, issues, and questions. The Bridgestaff monitors list activity and will assist in locating expertise to answerquestions that teachers post to the list, as needed. All educators andscientists interested in marine science education are invited to subscribe. Thelist does not provide research services for students' assignments. A link to subscribe to this listserveis on the National Marine EducationAssociation web site at http://www.marine-ed.org/ If you have any trouble subscribing to Scuttlebutt, pleasecontact Lisa Ayers Lawrence at ayers at vims.edu.

3.One additional resourcesfor marine education is The Bridge.TheBridge is a growing collection of the best marine education resources availableon-line.
