Contact Pamela Snow, Schoolyard Coordinator at (978) 756-6146 or via email to begin a hands-on, long-term ecological research project by enrolling in the Summer Institute.
Teachers are enouraged to particpate in our data workshops in late fall to learn how to input, manage, and analyze project data. The Level I Data Workshop is designed for first year teachers. The Levels II and III Workshops are for experienced Schoolyard teachers.
Teachers are invited to learn from Harvard ecologists about project protocols in the spring and to share, through a series of teacher presentations, the ways these project themes are being integrated into class curricula.
