Teachers Dive Deeper: Science and Engineering Practices Workshop at MSI 8th Annual Teacher Event

Updated: Apr 12, 2018

On March 6th 2018, Marine Science Institute invited teachers from all over the Bay Area to discover the hands-on science opportunities MSI offers to students. The event, SHIP TO SHORE: All You Need to Know and More! featured two teacher workshops in which participating teachers could experience MSI School Programs as students, and take home engaging activities and ideas supporting the NGSS Science and Engineering Practices for their classrooms.

SHIP TO SHORE: All You Need to Know and More! 2018 Workshops:

Workshop 1-- Scientific Classification: NGSS activity for students K-3rd, that teachers could easily replicate in their classrooms. This activity provides students a way to link their observations as they recognize patterns to organize and classify various items.

Workshop 2-- Scientific Method Combination Discovery Voyage: NGSS aligned, multiple exposure program offered for 4th grade and up, Scientific Method Combination. This workshop demonstrated how MSI Science Instructors facilitate inquiry and allow students to practice the skills needed to collect scientific data.
