2024 EARTH Workshop

June 24 - June 28

The 2024 EARTH workshop will be held June 24-28 in Seattle, WA, and is being co-hosted by the Global Ocean Biogeochemistry Array (GO-BGC), a project funded by the US National Science Foundation to build and deploy a global network of chemical and biological sensors that will monitor ocean health. This new network of floats will collect data on the chemistry and the biology of the ocean from the surface to a depth of 2,000 meters, and will allow scientists to pursue fundamental questions concerning ocean ecosystems, observe ocean health and productivity, and monitor the elemental cycles of carbon, oxygen, and nitrogen in the ocean through all seasons of the year.

During this workshop, educators work with active researchers to explore current science and/or engineering research, data, and conclusions. The educators are given time to develop their own curricula using the knowledge from these explorations and their own experiences to create classroom lessons tied to the abilities of their own students as well as current education standards and pedagogy. The teachers also develop connections with each other and with the researchers that assist them in expanding their classroom reach across the country.

Teachers involved in this EARTH workshop will:

  • Cultivate relationships with local researchers and like-minded educators that can lead to future collaborations

  • Explore available resources from supporting organizations and programs, such as GO-BGC and MBARI, and develop institutional connections that can aid in future lessons

  • Receive a Certificate of Participation that provides evidence of 40 hours of professional development that can be used toward continuing education or certificate renewal

  • Develop new curriculum resources that use real science and authentic data to teach science content and process and address their needs and the needs of their students
