Set Sail with the Joides Resolution12/02/2018
Aliki Weststrate has a great way to immerse your students in the science of what is going on beneath our feet, and it is all at sea!
"Want to take your students on board a ship in real time – a science ship doing hi-tech earthquake research near Gisborne? I’m the onboard teacher and I’ll take you on a video tour of this huge floating laboratory, where the students can ask Q, talk to the scientists, and see the amazing equipment and technology. To register for a free live video event please follow the prompts on the boat’s calendar & email firstname.lastname@example.org.
It will be tailored for your students' age/year level and is suitable for Years 1-8 Science - Nature of Science and Planet Earth and Beyond strands, and NCEA levels in the Earth & Space domain. Be great to have you onboard!"
Invitation to sign up for a live 'ship-to-shore' video with an educator and scientists on board the JOIDES Resolution
NZ and international scientists are on board studying slow slip earthquakes offshore from Gisborne, at the Hikurangi Subduction Zone. This is NZ's largest fault and they'll be coring and putting down high-tech observatories under the seafloor to better understand its earthquake and tsunami potential.

The voyage is run by the International Ocean Discovery Programme (IODP), an international marine research collaboration that explores Earth's history and dynamics using ocean-going research vessels to recover data recorded in seafloor sediments and rocks and to monitor sub-seafloor environments.
