Event description

Description

Spend *3* winter Fridays immersed in science on the Oregon Coast with South Slough! The Reserve is offering a unique training designed for teachers of all grade levels, pre-service teachers and non-formal educators who work closely with schools and classroom teachers. We will meet from 9 AM - 3 PM January 26, February 23 and March 23, 2018. Some housing will be available.

This 3-part training will enhance educators' abilities to:

  • engage students in real, data-driven science
  • use estuary systems as a place-based example of global issues and solutions
  • apply three-dimensional teaching techniques in the field and classroom

Participating Teachers will receive:

  • $240 stipend
  • field trip and resource supply funds
  • sample lessons and curriculum resources
  • lunch and snacks

South Slough National Estuarine Research Reserve educators and scientists will use field sites and research in the South Slough and Coos Bay estuaries to provide connections to essential science practices taught at all grade levels. This workshop will highlight the Reserve's fish seining (netting) project, the National Estuarine Research Reserve System's System Wide Monitoring Program (SWMP), and the application of NOAA education tools in the field and classroom.

Please note that this is a 3-part workshop, and attendance all days is required to recieve the $240 stipend and field or classroom support funds. Do not hesitate to contact us with questions! 541-888-5558 x127 or jaime.c.belanger@state.or.us

Deadline to register is January 19!
