We do…the Georgia Association of Marine Education, that is. GAME provides networking opportunities for its members, equips educators to teach marine science concepts more effectively, and celebrates the wonder of the aquatic systems of Georgia. GAME held its annual meeting at UGAMI on Nov 2-4, 2018 with a theme of the Collaborative Nature of Science. In addition to a full agenda of lectures, discussions, and teaching demonstrations, GAME members toured UGAMI’s facilities, spent a morning trawling aboard the R/V Spartina, and went on other field trips to experience UGAMI research and Sapelo Island’s natural beauty. Attendees included classroom teachers, museum educators, naturalists, natural resource managers, and university faculty. By meeting at UGAMI, Georgia’s marine education community had a fabulous opportunity to gain firsthand knowledge of current research and to develop relationships with researchers and fellow educators.
