Starting with master maritime navigator Nathaniel Bowditch, Houston Maritime is putting together a series of online curriculums helping connect children to their maritime heritage including video, worksheets, teachers’
guides, quizzes, and reading lists. These modules are available for a small cost to help with production costs, or are included in Educator and Corporate members. Houston Maritime is also creating a series of free modules that are available for shorter lessons and do not come with additional teacher’s resources.
Historically, these types of classes have been offered in-person to public and private schools, as well as homeschool classes. With over 350,000 homeschool students in Texas, an online resource for maritime curriculum is a strong need. Houston Maritime’s modules will be standalone options for teachers and parents to provide maritime education in their home or classroom. Gain access to the first in the series HERE.
Working with industry experts and professional training organizations, such as IMarEST and NAMEPA, Houston Maritime will serve as a platform for creating and delivering content for these organizations and their constituents. The modules will range from technical presentations to environmental lectures, utilizing Houston Maritime’s streaming webinar services, studio, moderators, and various video equipment. These modules will be available to Houston Maritime’s professional members once uploaded to the Houston Maritime site, as well as to the organization sponsoring the module.
