From H-2-O: a water quality workshop for teachers
Dates: June 1-4, 2016
This workshop will train you to become a Bayouside Classroom teacher, which will allow you to provide your students hands-on inquiry-based experiences in the environment while helping to monitor the health of Louisiana’s aquatic habitats. The focus of this workshop is on water quality and how you can use regular sampling to help your students understand scientific methods, their place in the estuary, watersheds, and what types of water quality problems exist in estuaries and the ocean.
From H-2-O is a multi-day residential workshop. The workshop is held at the DeFelice Marine Center in Cocodrie, LA, Louisiana's premier marine research center. Participates will spend about 2.5 days immersed in coastal estuarine environments. The workshop consists of both field, laboratory, and classroom work. All activities are designed to ensure that participants have the knowledge and skills needed to use Bayouside Classroom with their students.
From H-2-O is a dynamic teacher workshop that allows teachers to work with educator-scientists and mentor teachers to build a community of teachers that are incorporating water sampling into their science curriculum using Bayouside Classroom. Each new program teacher will be paired with a mentor teacher or instructor. Mentors are used to help provide a unique and in-depth learning experience.
This workshop is a partnership between LUMCON and the Barataria-Terrebonne National Estuary Program. The BTNEP provides funding and support for this workshop.
Teachers will receive classroom resources, equipment, CLUs, and free meals and lodging.
