ESIP Educator Workshop 2015


 

Asilomar Conference Center, Pacific Grove California
1pm Wednesday July 15th through 3pm Thursday July 16th

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 educators to join us at the ESIP summer meeting at the Asilomar Conference Center in beautiful Pacific Grove California.  

The educator’s workshop will start at 1pm Wednesday and end at 3pm Thursday and includes a poster session and community reception Wednesday evening. Educators are encouraged to stay overnight at Asilomar to maximize opportunities for interaction. Most workshop sessions will be focused on using Earth Science data to inform instruction, linking real-word scientific data to science curriculum in grades 9-14.

ESIP is looking for high school science teachers and community college faculty to join our educational community!
Participating Educators are eligible to receive a $100.00 time & travel stipend.
