NOAA Teacher at Sea
As I have been sharing in class, I will be shipping out next week as a NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) Teacher at Sea. During my time at sea, I will be onboard ship Henry B. Bigelow conducting fish abundance and health surveys as part of the Autumn Bottom Trawl. I’ll be blogging on my Teacher at Sea page, and you will need to read and comment on the posts. Please check out my introductory post and be sure to vote in the poll (and leave comments!)

- 3D Graphic Examples of atomic orbitals – see a representation of what orbitals looks like
- Atomic Electron Configurations – see what electron configurations look like for each element on the period table
