Tropical Ecology & Three Dimensional Learning
Join your fellow educators on a 7-day professional development course in the rain forests of Costa Rica's Caribbean slope. This immersive program focuses on developing your familiarity with the Next Generation Science Standards. You'll learn progressive methods and techniques for engaging with three dimensional learning, and you'll meet other impassioned teachers on their own journeys of discovery. By working alongside researchers and ecologists at EPI's Pacuare Reserve, and by helping critically threatened species like leatherback sea turtles, you'll have the chance to strengthen your curriculum in the fundamentals of science education: curiosity and real-world phenomena.
This course is open to all levels of informal or formal educators; no application is needed to enroll.
