Posted by on October 23, 2013 in Events, Professional Development | Comments Off on Teacher Professional Development Workshop – Engaging Your Students in Earth Systems Science and ArcGIS

As part of the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) Area Conference, the Colorado Geographic Alliance (COGA) and The GLOBE Program would like to invite K-12 teachers from rural school districts in Colorado to a Teacher Professional Development Workshop, as part of a National Girls Collaborative Project mini-grant. Teachers will learn how to use and implement COGA resources, ArcGIS, GLOBE resources, activities, protocols, and tools that can help teachers address the Next Generation Science Standards with their students. Upon completion of the training, teachers will be GLOBE trained and join an international science education network in more than 110 countries. Teachers will also learn about fun and engaging resources for teaching girls and other underrepresented populations in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM).

All participants will receive a $100 stipend as well as lunch the day of the workshop. The workshop will be from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm on Saturday, December 14, 2013 in Denver, CO at the Hyatt Regency Denver, Mineral Hall C.  (Note: This is in a hotel next to the convention center.)
