CALLING ALL K-12 Science Teachers!
The Thompson Earth Systems Institute, iDigFossils, and HETMP are sponsoring a three-day workshop focusing on how to incorporate human evolution into existing K-12 science curricula on July 14-18, 2019 (July 14 and July 18th will be travel days).
The goals for the Human Evolution Summer Teacher Workshop are to:
- Increase participants’ general knowledge of human evolution and paleontology/paleoanthropology
- Address concerns about teaching evolution/human evolution in K–12 schools
- Address the impact of social media and its ability to connect K–12 educators and palentologists/paleoanthropologists
- Develop open-source lesson plans focused on incorporating human evolution into K–12 education in a modern and accessible way.
- Gain a better understanding of what resources teachers need and how to best develop them as part of an ongoing collaboration
- Gain a better understanding of how 3D printing works and how to incorporate 3D prints in the classroom
Participants will be selected based on information provided in the following application, which must be submitted by the 25th of May in order to be considered. All travel, lodging, and meals will be provided.
Decisions will be communicated no later than the 1st of June in order for you to plan, and for us to arrange travel paperwork. If you have questions, you can contact Molly Selba (firstname.lastname@example.org) directly. We are very excited to share this opportunity with you!
