The NOAA Environmental Science Training Center offers workshops for educators. These training sessions offer the knowledge and tools educators need to help teach today’s students, who will be tomorrow’s Bay stewards. We hold workshops at our location in Oxford, Maryland, and at partner locations around the Chesapeake watershed.
Our workshops connect regional educators with science content from NOAA and our partners. The workshops also include how to apply this science with students in the classroom as well as in the field. This knowledge helps educators and teachers deliver meaningful watershed educational experiences. Our instructors include NOAA staff and experts from partner organizations. Topics we explore include climate change, fisheries science, and water quality.
Our upcoming workshops include:
- Education for Community Resilience/Maryland, March 3-4, 2020. Baltimore, Maryland. This two-day workshop will explore how communities throughout the region are dealing with environmental issues and hazards due to extreme weather events and the effects of climate change as well as other social and environmental changes.
We also offer courses online through Chesapeake Exploration. These courses include:
- Educator’s Guide to the Meaningful Watershed Educational Experience
- Using NOAA Data: Model Activities for Students
- Diving in to the Next Generation Science Standards
