HELP US DEVELOP EARTH SYSTEM SCIENCE RESOURCES!
We welcome your application to participate in a professional development program that is focused on the Teacher-Friendly Guides to regional Earth Sciences and Virtual Fieldwork Experiences. Funded by the National Science Foundation, the goal of the project is to produce curriculum supplements for seven regions of the United States, with work on the Southwestern (AZ, UT, CO, NM) and Rocky Mountain (ID, MT, ND, SD, WY, NE) regions beginning soon!
We are seeking enthusiastic educators from these two regions to meet with us before the actual development of the guides, serving as advisors during these initial stages. The Advisory Panels will be held at the R. S. Dietz Museum of Geology, Arizona State University, Tempe, AZ on March 5, 2011 for the Southwestern Region; and the Museum of the Rockies, Bozeman, MT on April 9, 2011 for the Rocky Mountain Region.
