The teacher workshops offered by Gateway are designed to create a collaborative community between teachers and park educators. The workshop introduces concepts of Citizen Science and how students will be participating in important scientific research and learning about the park itself.
How to create your own, project based, citizen science activity in a National Park
Where: Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge, Queens, NY
When: Tuesday, November 7 10 am to 2:30 pm
Citizen Science is a teaching method that extends beyond the classroom to get teachers, scientists, and students thinking about real-world applications of science and real needs of our communities. Students will perform scientific inquiry that aids park researchers in making good decisions for Gateway, and empowers students to seek out solutions to problems they see in their world.
