Whales’ Tales, Turtle Hurdles, and Migration Phenomena

A Summer Professional Development Institute for Grades 3-8 Educators

Explore how scientists track nature’s most impressive superheroes — whales, sharks, turtles, birds, and butterflies — as you investigate the phenomena of migration! Engage in inquiry-based, phenomena-based, and place-based learning with the Wade Institute for Science Education and our collaborating partners Manomet, Inc., the Lloyd Center for the Environment, and the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy during a weeklong Summer Professional Development Institute. Investigate the phenomena of wildlife migration, explore technologies and tools used to track migrating species, work with real time and historical data, and learn how to get your students involved in citizen monitoring programs!
