I LOVE Sapelo Island, and if I could, I would do this one in a heartbeat. Complete with stipend. Here’s the announcement:
2019 Middle School Marine Science (MS)2 Summer Workshop
The 2019 Middle School Marine Science (MS)2 Summer Workshop is accepting registrations from middle school earth and life science teachers interested in exploring the topic of marine science as it connects to the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). The workshop will be held at the Marine Institute at Sapelo Island and will involve hands-on activities. Teachers will also be introduced to 1-week ready-to-use classroom modules created by Georgia Tech with support from the National Science Foundation* and the ECOGIG project. Through lectures by faculty, break-out discussion and lesson planning sessions, and hands-on lab and field exercises, the 4-day course (July 14-17, 2019) will disseminate teaching modules developed around cutting-edge marine science. Modules consist of lesson plans and project learning exercises that address key marine topics, such as ocean food webs, oil spills, and ocean salinity and oxygen shifts in response to global change.
