IVCC instructor to speak at Ocean Sciences meeting in Hawaii

Posted by wlpo on January 25, 2014

The absence of an ocean hasn’t stopped an Illinois Valley Community College instructor from teaching an ocean science course and writing a paper about it.

Mike Phillips is headed to the 2014 Ocean Sciences Meeting next month in Honolulu, Hawaii.  There he’ll present his paper, “Design your own marine organism: An exercise for introductory oceanography courses.”  The paper earned him a $2,500 grant from the National Science Foundation. 

Phillips has been teaching at IVCC for 17 years.
