NOW AVAILABLE: Algae Culture Extension Short-Course (ACES): Part 1 | Macroalgae
The Algal Culture Extension Short-course (ACES) is the extension/outreach component of the Algae Technology Education Consortium (ATEC). Part 1 covers Macroalgae and is designed for those already in the aquaculture/shellfish industry seeking to learn the basic skills to grow seaweeds from USA and around the world. Marine Agronomy offers commercial aquaculture, fishermen, and lobstermen the opportunity to grow seaweed during the winter when these efforts are at a minimum. ACES is an on-line curriculum that covers both the U.S. perspective as well as inclusion of seaweed culture around the world. This course includes 53 online videos and 17 publications.

NOW AVAILABLE: Introduction to Algae MOOC
ATEC is excited to announce the Introduction to Algae Massive Open Online Course (MOOC). The Massive Open Online Course offered through Coursera was produced by the University of San Diego and the Algae Technology Education Consortium and taught by Drs. Steve Mayfield of UCSD and Ira “Ike” Levine, University of Southern Maine. This course brings together some of foremost algae experts from industry and academia to share their experience and understandings of the fundamentals of algae.
We invite you to sign up for this wonderful opportunity to learn the “Power of Algae” and share this course with your colleagues in the science community, educators, and your social networks.

Algae Technology Educational Consortium (ATEC)
The Algae Foundation launched the Algae Technology Educational Consortium (ATEC) project, recognizing algal production will provide a sustainable source of biomass for bio-based products, feed, fuel and foods creating high quality jobs for an educated workforce. Through algal education students learn practical applications of farming and biotechnology developing the skills for the next generation of algal-based jobs.
Algae Technology Educational Consortium (ATEC)is a partnership between
National Research Laboratories
The consortium’s goal is to develop novel educational programs to strengthen industry workforce capabilities, by focusing on the skills needed to support the commercialization of algal products.
“We are developing the next generation of algae researchers, scientists and engineers whose skills are in great demand from the hundreds of companies developing and deploying algae technology in the U.S. and around the world.”
