Workshop for Science Teachers and Informal Educators from Cornell Lab of Ornithology
Afterschool Investigators: Friday, September 19 from 9:00am-1:00pm at TASC, 1440 Broadway, 16th Floor | New York, NY 10018
Habitat Connections Teacher Workshop: Saturday, September 20 from 9:00am-3:30pm at NYU Steinhardt, Department of Teaching and Learning, East Building, 239 Greene Street, 3rd Floor | New York, NY
The Cornell Lab of Ornithology seeks elementary and middle-school science teachers (4th-8th grade preferred), informal educators, and after-school educators to participate in free professional development workshops called Birdsleuth.
BirdSleuth builds positive attitudes, confidence, and science interest in students. Citizen science and inquiry experiences provide motivation and excitement to students of all ability levels, including those who don’t excel in more traditional forms of learning. We’re excited to announce two consecutive workshops being held in New York City this September, and we invite you to apply to attend either or both!
The workshops are being held in partnership with the NYU Wallerstein Collaborative for Urban Environmental Studies, and The After-School Corporation.
