K-12 Science teachers in NW MN invited to Workshop in GLOBE (Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment)
27 July - 1 August

This blended learning event, taught by GLOBE trainers Drs. Laura Munski and Matt Gilmore, will focus on training K-12 teachers to use several of the GLOBE environmental measurement protocols and hands-on learning activities related to three interdisciplinary components of the earth system: atmosphere, soil, and plant life. The training and written materials, developed and refined over 20 years by an international group of science educators, are focused on grade levels 6-12, although the materials can be scaled for K-5. During the trainings, teachers will be asked to participate through practicing the detailed instrument measurement protocols and learning activities during 12 face-to-face hours and 3 associated online training hours. Once certified, GLOBE-trained teachers will join the collaborative international network of science teachers and scientists.

Dates: E-training begins Thur July 27th.  Face-to-face instruction, Mon July 31st - Tues Aug 1st
Who: Any K-5 teacher or 6-12 science teacher. In-service or pre-service.
