Teacher Workshop and Teacher/Student Overnight

Building New England Connections (BNEC) brings together teams of teachers using the watersheds and coastal environments of New England as a context for learning.  Project Oceanology and Connecticut Sea Grant are providing this opportunity with funding from NOAA’s Bay-Watershed Education and Training (B-WET) Program. First,  a 2-day professional development session at Project Oceanology in Groton, Connecticut, November 6-7,  in which teachers will be immersed in a model research experience while sharing ideas and resources to facilitate the incorporation of estuarine and watershed concepts into your classroom curriculum.
In addition, two teachers and fifty (50) of their students (one team from each New England state) will participate in a 2-day overnight research project of coastal and watershed environments including an oceanographic research cruise, laboratory and field studies, scheduled for the Winter and Spring 2010.

To begin, form a team from your school (2 teachers and 1 supervisor or 3 teachers) and contact Lauren Rader, 860.445.9007, lrader@oceanology.org
