Teacher Training Workshops

Throughout the year, Seacoast Science Center—often in partnership with other institutions—offers professional learning opportunities for teachers. These workshops include both outdoor in-the-field and indoor learning, as well as the opportunity to connect and network with other educators from across the region. 

Teachers will come away with direct experience, hands-on work, and the satisfaction of contributing to community science through the projects they work on. In addition, they will also receive curriculum resources they can use in their classrooms!

If you would like to receive updates on upcoming Teacher Training Workshops and other resources for educators, please join our mailing list.

Teacher Workshop: Nature Notes

A FREE, in-depth professional development opportunity focused on Nature Notes, a type of journal submission for middle school students.

The Gulf of Maine Research Institute is gearing up for this year’s issue of Findings from the Field, an online journal of environmental research written and reviewed by middle school students. Findings from the Field provides middle school students with the chance to observe, ask questions, peer review, and communicate scientific findings with a community of fellow young scientists. We need your students’ scientific observations to make this sixth edition of the journal possible!

During this workshop, educators will learn how to support student scientists in the creation of a concise and informative Nature Note, editing and peer review, and publishing their findings in an upcoming edition of Findings from the Field. Educators will engage in this student experience, constructing scientific observations of the marine ecosystems on display at Seacoast Science Center and learning about the scientific observation and communication process.

Lunch will be provided in addition to sub and mileage reimbursement.

Most of this day will be spent outdoors, so please dress in warm layers! 

Delayed opening today.

Seacoast Science Center will open at 11am today due to inclement weather.
