Registration Open: Schoolyard Summer Institute for Teachers
The 12th annual Schoolyard Ecology Summer Institute for Teachers will be held at Harvard Forest on Thursday, August 20. All teachers of grades 4-12 are welcome to register.
Through field walks and presentations led by Harvard Forest ecologists, attendees will learn how to implement field studies of local ecosystems, invasive species, and/or global climate change with their students in their own schoolyards. The projects align with state and NGSS science standards and incorporate real hands-on science practice and data analysis.
A $50 registration fee includes all field and project materials, plus optional follow-up workshops throughout the school year. PDPs will be awarded to all attendees.
The Harvard Forest Schoolyard Ecology Program is supported by the National Science Foundation's Long-Term Ecological Research Program.
