USC Sea Grant is conducting a nationwide NOAA-funded research project aimed at preventing the spread of invasive species, which includes a teacher survey on the use of live plants and animals in the classroom. Project organizers have asked the COSEE Network to help disseminate the survey to teachers. The survey will close on July 1st. This is a nationwide project, so input from teachers in every state, from kindergarten to university level, is needed.
By sharing your knowledge you will help develop appropriate tools that maintain the use of live organisms in the classroom while also helping to prevent the spread of potentially invasive species.
Please follow this link to fill out the survey and help with this important cause.
Please note: there will not be a follow-up focus group in the New England region, but your input is still needed!
