Course Title: "The Interactions of Earth's Spheres"
We invite teachers of Grades 3-8 to join us as we will examine the new standards and build upon our STEM content knowledge through the creation of innovative, pedagogical techniques that engage students. Using the hydrosphere as a theme, teachers will explore unique ways to develop lessons that are interdisciplinary, therefore finding ways to incorporate STEM concepts and skills in an already tightly-packed school day. The summer session includes a Skype session with marine biologist and author, Dr. Ellen Prager.
