NGSS and Environmental Learning are Topics for Upcoming Free Teacher Workshop at the Marine Science
In order to help San Francisco Bay Area teachers maneuver through today’s confusing science-education landscape, which includes Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), Environmental Literacy and Common Core, the Marine Science Institute (MSI) is hosting its seventh annual, free teacher workshop on Wednesday, March 8 from 4:30-6:30 pm.
During this year’s “Ship to Shore – All you need to know and more!” teachers will have the opportunity to:
-- Attend mini-workshops focusing on biomimicry and engineering ideas.
-- Learn about our marine science programs and their alignment with NGSS.
-- Delve deeper into understanding NGSS, particularly engineering standards.
--Learn about grants available for teachers and classes that can be applied to Marine Science Institute's programs.
Every year the Marine Science Institute educates over 50,000 students and adults through all of its programs. Holding educational workshops for teachers is just another way the MSI reaches its overall mission “to cultivate a responsibility for the natural environment and our human communities through interdisciplinary science education.”
Since we like to spoil our teachers we’ll be raffling off fun prizes. Numerous area businesses have generously donated items specifically for our teachers. Delicious food and drink will also be available. Russian Ridge Winery and Devil’s Canyon Brewing Company, both of San Carlos, have kindly donated adult refreshments for the event.
