In order to train, support and connect new customers of Science Connection we are hosting a special professional development institute this August in Valley Forge, PA. The first ever Discovery Education Science Connection Summer Institute will allow participants to:
- Receive intensive professional development on Science Connection as a resource to support inquiry-based learning and differentiated instruction
- Engage in hands-on activities that model how instruction is enhanced with Science Connection content
- Learn how to integrate Science Connection content across the middle-grades curriculum
- Develop a sample project using Science Connection content
STAR Discovery Educators and new customers of Science Connection have the opportunity to attend the institute which will occur from August 13-16, 2007. Attendees will be responsible for travel costs to and from the institute, but all other expenses (lodging, meals, etc.) will be covered by the DEN.
So, if your school has purchased, or is going to purchase DESC, join us this summer. Space is limited so contact me as soon as possible for more details.
