Ecology Project International is offering 7-9 day field-based professional development courses for educators focused on providing tools and methodologies to bring Next Generation Science Standards into the classroom. Travel to Costa Rica, the Galapagos, Yellowstone, or Baja to develop curriculum aligned to NGSS, model engaging student activities, and network with fellow educators. Come snorkel with whale sharks, study giant tortoises, or research bison in a national park while you build NGSS storylines around amazing natural phenomena. Courses are offered in Spring and Summer and you can find dates, prices, and locations here: www.ecologyproject.org/ngss.
