Sail into NGSS at LIS teacher workshop

Secondary life and earth science teachers are invited to a water- and land-based workshop on Saturday Sept. 7 on Long Island Sound aboard a SoundWaters schooner departing from the dock in Stamford.

The workshop, sponsored by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Sea Grant program, is titled “Evidence of Environmental Change in Long Island Sound” and will include presentations on scientific data collection and analysis methods. Teachers will also get an introduction to Tuva, a free data visualization resource that may be leveraged in future state science assessments. The workshop content is aligned with the Next Generation Science Standards. Participants will receive complimentary instructional resources from NOAA Sea Grant.

The workshop will be from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. leaving from the dock at Harbor Center at Boccuzzzi Park, 20 Southfield Ave., Stamford.
