Where: Snowbird Alpine Village and Natural History Museum of Utah at the Rio Tinto Center
When: June 22, 2013

Society for the Study of Evolution
EVO101 Workshop: Hands on Evolution for
Middle and High School Teachers

Evolutionary biology is a dynamic and exciting field.  Science educators in the Salt Lake City area are invited to join evolutionary biologists and other science educators for "Evolution 101" - a one day workshop to be held at Snowbird Alpine Village<http://www.evolutionmeeting.org/Venue13.html> and the Natural History Museum of Utah at the Rio Tinto Center<http://nhmu.utah.edu/> on June 22.

Come learn about recent research in the field of evolution, talk with evolutionary biologists, and attend sessions that feature hands-on activities for teaching evolution to all ages.  Participants will receive FREE teaching resources and other give-aways and have the opportunity to attend the Gould Award Lecture, given by the recipient of The Stephen Jay Gould Prize, awarded annually by the Society for the Study of Evolution to recognize individuals whose sustained and exemplary efforts have advanced public understanding of evolutionary science and its importance in biology, education, and everyday life in the spirit of Stephen Jay Gould.  Lunch is included.

For more information and to register go to Evolution 2013
http://www.evolutionmeeting.org/workshop_k-12_2013.html

Registration is limited to 30 participants.

General information:
Fifty Modeling Workshops in high school physics, chemistry,  physical
science, and biology will be offered in summer 2013, in many states.
Modeling Workshops are peer-led. Modeling Instruction is designated
by the U.S. Department of Education as an Exemplary K-12 science
program.

Some sites offer stipends, usually for in-state teachers.  Graduate
credit is available at some sites. Pre-service teachers and TYC
faculty are welcome too.

What: New Water Cycle for Kids Resource from US Geological Survey (multiple languages available)
Cost: FREE
Where:  http://ga.water.usgs.gov/edu/watercycle-kids.html

Greetings,

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) have teamed up to create a water-cycle diagram for kids and elementary and middle schools. It is  available in a number of languages.

I hope it can be useful in elementary and middle-school science classes.

What: NASA's Meteorology: How Clouds Form Web Seminar
When: Webinar on March 14, 2013 at 7:30 PM EDT
Cost: FREE

As part of a series of electronic professional development experiences, the NASA Explorer Schools project and the National Science Teachers Association are hosting a free 90-minute Web seminar on March 14, 2013, at 7:30 p.m. EDT. Learn about the relationships between air pressure, temperature, volume and cloud formation. Get an overview of the necessary conditions for cloud formation and then see how to make a cloud in a bottle. Information will be provided about an extension activity, the S'COOL Project, which involves student participation in authentic science.

This is the last time this seminar will be offered during the current school year.
