NASA in the Classroom - GEN Teacher Workshop in North Dakota

Registration is open for the following Galileo Educator Network Teacher Workshop:

University of North Dakota Campus Skalicky Hall, Room 211

March 28, 2014: 11am – 8pm (UND Observatory 9:30pm – 11pm)

The purpose of this workshop is to help classroom teachers with new and innovative ways to advance science learning with students, through the use of various hands-on activities, NASA content, and astronomy teaching reflecting the Next Generation Science Standards. Teachers will incorporate these new standards into existing lesson plans, learn new activities presented at the workshop, and investigate the Nature of Science. The workshop will also include interactive tours of the Spacecraft Simulators and UND Observatory. Participants should plan to bring a laptop or iPad for online investigations. Teachers will leave the workshop with a better understanding of space sciences in general, a Hands-on-Universe DVD of astronomy lessons, and ready-made activities for the classroom.

Meals will be provided. Travel reimbursement is available to North Dakota teachers. Participants will receive one Professional Development Credit. After registering, participants will receive more details by email closer to the dates of the workshop. This workshop is open to both in-service and pre-service teachers for grades K-12.
