EARTH uses near-real-time data from ocean observatories to design and test outreach with the Internet as an interface to scientists, teachers, students, and the public. Click here for more information on the EARTH program.
The 2020 EARTH workshop will be held August 3-7 in Dobbs Ferry, NY, and will be co-hosted by Mercy College Center for STEM Education. To keep up to date on all things EARTH, please join our facebook page.
Because we only have a limited number of spots available in each EARTH workshop, applications are required. Applications, including all supporting materials, are due by 0800 PST on February 21st, 2020 for the summer workshop. The application process is outlined below.
- Complete the online EARTH Workshop Application form and submit any additional resources as appropriate. Be sure your answers to the questions clearly express your experience, background, and/or interest in the topic of using real-time data in your educational environment. Any supporting materials can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Applicants are required to try out one (or more) EARTH lesson in your classroom or institution and complete the online feedback rubric (Note: this will take you to a new page on SurveyMonkey).
Returning teachers who have previously participated in an EARTH Workshop can make their application stronger by demonstrating a commitment to mentoring colleagues (hosting an in-service or EARTH Satellite workshop in your area), enhancing the EARTH resources (testing out Lessons in Development and providing extensive feedback or new resources to enrich our website), or disseminating EARTH content (presenting about EARTH at a meeting or conference). Please contact us if you have any questions about the application process.
In 2016, MBARI updated our website to a new platform, and as a result, many of our older workshops and activities have been archived. We are in the process of posting these older activities on our current website, but if there is a specific activity you are searching for and can’t find, please let us know and we will be happy to provide you with a direct link.
