C.O.O.L. Classroom

The COOL Classroom is a series of internet-based instructional modules that link middle and high school classrooms with active research investigations at the Rutgers Marine & Coastal Sciences (RMCS) COOLroom, a collection of oceanographers studying the coastal ocean off the coast of New Jersey. The Coastal Ocean Observatory Laboratory room (aka COOLroom) is where a group of scientists are collaborating to develop a three-dimensional understanding of the ocean over time. And it is, quite literally, one room. Since 1997, this room has served as command central for studies being conducted on a cross-section of the ocean off the New Jersey coast, and is where scientists interpret the results so they can be published on the world wide web for anyone's use.
