The Great Outdoors
January 13, 2021 7-8 p.m.
Learning science outside is engaging, healthy, and a great way to make science relevant while collecting data and fostering genuine curiosity. And this year, with students learning on the screen most of the time, it has the potential to be more impactful than ever. But how can you do that when it’s freezing outside? Or when your students are learning remotely? And how can you weave this outdoor learning into an already packed curriculum? Join us to learn practical tips and techniques that will inspire and empower you to take science outside this year… even in January!
