DESC Summer Institute

Desc_inst
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.

Here is a one-pager that highlights the primary goals of the institute:

    My school is purchasing the program while it is on sale. I have given this information to our main Science Teacher and Technology Teacher who are co-teaching a class using this. I am going to be in a different and unique capacity where I can use the program a lot next year, too. I am going to ask the Director of Programming if I may attend to. Put me down as a question mark, at this time, I will get back with you shortly to let you know.

    I am excited about Discovery Science!!! It is awesome!

    Discovery science is a great chance for teacher’s to easily implement inquiry based projects into their classroom. I am looking forward to attending the training this summer, so that I can be a resource for teachers at my school who have not tried Discovery Science connection yet.
