Oil Spills: A Guided Tour
8 - Teaching Spill Response
One of our other functions is to hold training sessions and courses. Typical course participants include other spill responders, but we also travel to schools and colleges to demonstrate how oil spill response works, show children how to perform simple experiments to learn about oil spills, or lecture on spill response and related topics.
