Application websitedeadline April 1, 2013

Are you a middle or high school science or mathematics teacher who wants to…

  • learn about the movement of water through soils and watersheds?
  • understand how mathematics and science content can support one another?
  • experience inquiry instruction within the Earth sciences?
  • see how computer models are used to understand and represent complex situations?
  • realize how knowledge in the Earth science applies to everyday decisions made by citizens and landowners?
  • meet local professionals working on water resources issues?

This five and half day hands-on workshop featuring a series of field exercises will take place on The Ohio State University campus from July 8-13. Two follow up sessions will be held during the school year. Teams of math and science teachers are encouraged to apply. Any teacher from the United States is eligible to attend this program.

Summer Session: July 8-12 (9:00am – 4:00pm) with a half day on July 13 at a watershed site; Follow Up Sessions – TBA

Participating teachers will be expected to attend all five and a half days, attend two followup sessions during the school year, implement science lessons (where appropriate) in their classrooms, and participant fully in activities and discussions. Teachers will be exposed to rigorous science content and interact with scientists and engineers. CEUs will be available. Teachers will be compensated $100 for completion of the summer session and $100 for participation in the follow up sessions and classroom observations.
