Description

Spring topic: Climate Change and Human Impacts

Wanted: Teachers in grades 4 – 12

Join Project Oceanology and New England Science & Sailing (NESS) for a 2-day professional development program and immerse yourself in the science of the Long Island Sound with STEM and NGSS! This spring, our focus will be on climate change and human impacts in the sound. Bring the NGSS science and engineering practices to life as you: survey harbor seal populations aboard the research vessel Envirolab, explore climate change concepts using hands-on activities, engineer an aquaponics system, and design, build, and test an ROV.

Gain confidence with NGSS and develop a working knowledge of STEM programs available to your students provided by both Project Oceanology and NESS. Learn how to engage your students through experiential learning and empower your students to think and act like scientists!

When: Friday, April 5 – 2:00 PM – 8:00 PM Project Oceanology

Saturday, April 6 – 8:00 AM – 2:00 PM NESS

Opportunities include: Enjoy a complimentary overnight stay in Project Oceanology’s waterfront hostel!
