What to Expect

The two-day Teachers on the Estuary workshop will get teachers outside on the estuary and marsh, learning by doing. It will also expose teachers to scientists, who will present on current research and provide applicable ways of teaching scientific concepts back in the classroom.

This TOTE workshop will equip teachers with activities they can replicate with their students. Time for reflection while nature journaling and processing with fellow teachers will be provided each day.

Each teacher will receive a $200 stipend, as well as $150 worth of equipment to use with students. Teachers traveling a distance will also receive free lodging in Wells. Breakfast snacks and lunch are provided each day of the workshop.
