Gundalow Company is offering a free professional development workshop this summer aboard its new gundalow. Fifth- and sixth-grade teachers* will learn to use hands-on science activities, field experiences and local scientific data to teach about marine life, water quality and human impact on the local environment. All activities will be based in Portsmouth, NH over several days: August 16 and 17 for classroom and field work; a half-day in September for a free boat-based field trip for your class; and a follow-up evening session in October.
Registration now open with limited space. Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for registration and information.
*While this is geared toward fifth and sixth grade teachers, registration will be extended to other grades as space allows.
This workshop is offered at no cost to teachers thanks to funding through NOAA’s Bay Watershed Education and Training Program – which is designed to provide “meaningful watershed educational experiences (MWEE)”. The nonprofit Gundalow Company is one of four organizations working together on NEOSEC’s “Get WET in New England”.
