ESIP Teacher Workshop

UNC Chapel Hill - Friday Center
Tuesday July 9th
2013

Middle and High School science teachers are invited to attend the 2013 ESIP Teacher Workshop and take home an iPad on loan (like a book) for the entire school year.

The Federation of Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP) is a unique consortium of scientific organizations that collect, interpret and develop applications for remotely sensed data. This summer the ESIP education committee is inviting regional science teachers to join us at the summer meeting in Chapel Hill North Carolina to learn about efforts to study and steward our planet.

Participating G6-12 educators will attend a one-day workshop on Tuesday July 9th and the option to join ESIP members at an afternoon gathering at the North Carolina Museum of Natural History in downtown Raleigh during the afternoon of Wednesday July 10th. The teacher workshop will have an overall theme of Earth Science Education with an integral strand dedicated to Climate Change Education, featuring several hands-on sessions demonstrating ways that Earth science tools and data can be used in science classrooms.

ESIP is looking for science teachers to join our educational community.
