Name: Finding Fish: Teachers on the Estuary Workshop - Summer Verison: South Slough
Date: July 18, 2018 - July 20, 2018
Event Description:
Spend 3 summer days immersed in science on the Oregon Coast with South Slough! The Reserve is offering a hands-on, interactive training designed for teachers of all grade levels, pre-service teachers and non-formal educators who work closely with schools and classroom teachers. We will meet from 8:30 AM - 4:00 PM July 18 & 19, and 8:30 - 3:00 on July 20, 2018. Some housing will be available. This 3-part training will enhance educators' abilities to:
  • engage students in real, data-driven science
  • use estuary systems as a place-based example of global issues and solutions
  • apply three-dimensional teaching techniques in the field and classroom
Participating Teachers will receive:
  • stipend and/or housing
  • sample lessons and curriculum
  • lunch each day
South Slough National Estuarine Research Reserve educators and scientists will use field sites and research in the South Slough and Coos Bay estuaries to provide connections to essential science practices taught at all grade levels. This workshop will highlight the Reserve's fish seining (netting) project, the National Estuarine Research Reserve System's System Wide Monitoring Program (SWMP), and the application of NOAA education tools in the field and classroom.

Attendance is required all days. Do not hesitate to contact us with questions! 541-888-5558 x127 or jaime.c.belanger@state.or.us.
