The Education Office: Particles and Prairies Teacher Workshop

Particle and Prairies
Discover the biodiversity of the tallgrass prairie. Learn tools your students can use to gather data and make observations that will help increase their knowledge and appreciation of this unique habitat. The hands-on, interactive focus of this instructional unit gives your students the opportunity to be apprentice scientists. On the free field trips they may experience field study in three habitats - prairie, woods and pond.
About the Workshop
"I'm re-energized about teaching my science; I'm also more confident in my knowledge of the content."
"It offered a lot of great instructional materials; allowed me to expand my understanding and experience material I would be presenting to my class."
"I will be a better science teacher because of the course and the support of the instructors and Fermilab staff."
"On a scale of 1-10, with 10 the highest— a definite 10."
"Great ideas to engage students for research and hands-on."
"I'll be recommending it to others!"
"The instructor was very hands-on; I was always moving and practicing new skills; I learned so much! I traveled very far, but it was worth it!"
