The Summer issue of F&J  is online! The theme of this edition is "Next Generation Science Standards", and includes features on the state of the rollout of NGSS in MA and other related topics, as well as a report on our WHOI conference, also featured on the NMEA blog

The Autumn issue will focus on Aquatic Chemistry. We're always looking for educators to share stories and lesson plans! Contact the F&J Editor to contribute.
