Educator Workshop Series: 4 sessions focused on comprehension of the carbon cycle and contribution to community science
Join us for an exciting new series of place-based workshops focused on collective science and stewardship in the Upper Valley. With support from the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation, Shelburne Farms is partnering with the National Park Service and NASA’s Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment to offer educator professional development in environmental data collection protocols designed for K-12 students. Extensive opportunities exist to collaborate locally as well as internationally. Explore ways to engage students in authentic investigations, reflection, problem-solving, and sharing their work publicly to strengthen students’ sense of efficacy and their abilities to create healthier lives and communities. The first virtual sessions will offer an introduction to the GLOBE program and exploration of the website for confident navigation and ease of use. The second session, also online, will focus on the carbon cycle resources and eTrainings offered by GLOBE. The March 31 session will be in-person at Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park. That session will go through carbon cycle protocols that can be introduced and practiced in your classroom. The last session (optional) will be conducted in conjunction with the Working Woodlands Workshop series and include an interpretive climate change hike at Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller that illustrates the impact of this work.
In order to receive the $250 stipend, participants must attend the first three sessions, collect local forest data with students, and provide feedback.
