Applications are now being accepted for the 2018 MBARI EARTH workshop which will be held June 24-29, 2018 in Newport Oregon.
Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) Education and Research: Testing Hypotheses (EARTH) is providing a free, week long training for teachers that focuses on at-sea data collection. This opportunity is co-hosted by the NSF Regional Class Research Vessel, Oregon State University, and the Oregon Coast STEM Hub. Click here for more information on the EARTH program.
Teachers will work with researchers to develop ways to use data in the classroom. A stipend provided and space is limited. For more information and to register, visit: https://www.mbari.org/products/educational-resources/earth/
From the MBARI EARTH website:
What is EARTH?
EARTH uses near-real-time data from ocean observatories to design and test outreach with the Internet as an interface to scientists, teachers, students, and the public.
Because we only have a limited number of spots available in each EARTH workshop, applications are required. The application period typically opens in December and closes in early February. The application process comprises two steps, outlined below. Your application is complete when we have received both parts.
- Complete the online EARTH Workshop Application form and submit any additional resources as appropriate.
- Try out one (or more) EARTH lesson in your classroom or institution and complete the online feedback rubric
Returning teachers who have previously participated in an EARTH Workshop can make their application stronger by demonstrating a commitment to mentoring colleagues (hosting an in-service or EARTH Satellite workshop in your area), enhancing the EARTH resources (testing out Lessons in Development and providing extensive feedback or new resources to enrich our website), or disseminating EARTH content (presenting about EARTH at a meeting or conference).
