ERN Item Type:
- Teacher Professional Development
This institute, sponsored by the Monterey Bay Aquarium, invited teachers of grades 9-12 to explore the role humans have played in the bay's stability and change over time. During June 25-30, participants will do field investigations and learn about climate change science, plastic pollution, sustainable seafood, and the physics, chemistry, and biology of the kelp forest. Teams of teachers may apply, and interdisciplinary teams are encouraged. Participants must attend all summer sessions and use the curriculum presented with their students. Room and board are provided, and a $50 daily stipend is available upon completion of the institute; credits from California State University, Monterey Bay, are available.
