Join us on Saturday, October 15, for the New York State Museum’s Annual Earth Science Teacher Workshop. This year’s workshop will be a one-day hybrid program held at the New York State Museum and virtually over the web, with top research experts in various fields of Geology/Earth Science and Paleontology, in New York and beyond.
The day-long workshop provides educational experience for New York State Earth Science/Physical Setting teachers. Participants are immersed in geology and paleontology and will receive 8 continuing education (CTLE) credits. The workshop provides an informal setting for learning through interaction between earth science teachers and research experts, through which participants will have the opportunity to expand their knowledge of New York-specific topics; refine their observational and interpretive skills; and inquire, formulate, and test their scientific practices and applications.
2022 Workshop leaders will include Drs. Donald Prothero from Occidental College and Jeff Chiarenzelli from St. Lawrence University, along with New York State Museum curators/research scientists Drs. Charles Ver Straeten, Lisa Amati, Marian Lupulescu, Robert Feranec, and Julieann Van Nest.
Registration for in-person participation will be limited to the first 30 applicants. There will be a waitlist available once capacity is reached. Should the rate of Covid-19 infections rise, this program may be transitioned to a fully virtual program.
Registrations are due by: October 1, 2022
