So, from what I hear I was on the Tumblr Radar! w00t! Unfortunately, I didn’t get to see it (and am not even sure which post of mine was up!) because I spent all day Monday packing and preparing for my move to Seattle! Well, I’m here. I won’t lie, I’m excited about Seattle and studying Museology (aka Museum Studies) with an emphasis on informal science education at UW - but I miss NY and my friends there. Too much traveling can make the heart weak. =(
But I’ll be ok, and I got some more great reports and photos from the Maker Faire at the NY Hall of Science (NYSCI) lined up, though it may take a few days till I get my internet set up. (Right now I’m “borrowing” from a neighbor; it’s ok though, I’ll give the internet back when I’m done =)
Oh, and so rad that two of the photos made it to the Tumblr Science feed! Really honored!
Stay awesome Tumblrs!
My Carbon Footprint teacher PD this weekend at NYSCI
This Saturday, November 5, NYSCI will host 100 teachers for a My Carbon Footprint professional development workshop. The educators will learn all about the project, receive a copy of the curriculum, and get a chance to try out some of the My Carbon Footprint lessons.
To prepare for this workshop, members of NYSCI’s education staff have eagerly been gathering materials and organizing classrooms and labs. We had a difficult time picking which lessons we’ll be highlighting, but we finally selected Natural Variability vs. Man-Made Climate Change, Life Cycles of Electronics, and Adaptation and Mitigation: Sea Level Rise. Even if you can’t make it to the workshop, you can check out these lessons as well as many more by downloading the My Carbon Footprint curriculum found on the Curriculum page of this site.
These are photos of students completing the same lessons the teachers will try out on Saturday.
Check back next week for some pictures and stories from the workshop.
