USING CAMERAS TO STUDY WILDLIFE: AN EDUCATOR WORKSHOP

This day-long workshop consists of two parts. During the first section, participants will explore the use of cameras through a variety of hands-on activities. In the second section, teachers will work in small groups to discuss ways that this information can be brought back into the classroom. It is considered a working training where a usable product will be developed at the end.

In addition, we will invite all participants to involve their classrooms in a year-long, student-generated, research project that will result in presentation at a student research symposium in May.

Educational activities will be geared toward middle and high school teachers. However, all educators are welcome to register. All participants will receive a certificate for 6.5 hours of continuing education credit. Participants will be responsible for their own lunch.

The workshop is free. However, space is limited and registration is required. Registration does not guarantee participation. Spots will be filled on a "first to register" basis. If all spots are filled, additional registrations will be added to a waiting list. All accepted participants will receive additional details as we get closer to the program.
