Saturday February 7, 2015, SECOORA was an exhibitor at the 2nd annual Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Festival at Brittlebank Park, in Charleston, SC.
It is estimated the festival attracted over 7,500 attendees. SECOORA teamed with our member organization, South Carolina Sea Grant Extension Program, to demonstrate the importance of coastal ocean observing in the Southeast to a wide range of users. Children, teens, and families learned about the basic functions of buoys and a variety of sensors. Visitors explored Caro-COOPS real-time buoy data off the coast of South Carolina in our data portal.
SECOORA would like to thank Gulf of Mexico Coastal Ocean Observing Regional Association (GCOOS-RA) and the University of South Florida College of Marine Science for providing sensors, a miniature buoy replica and other material for the festival.
