Teachers learn about clam biosampling at the Changing Tides workshop

Virtual Teacher Workshop Series:  November 3-18, 2020

In November 2020, through our partnership with the National Park Service, we connected with teachers in grades K-12 to showcase some of the remote learning opportunities that exist at Alaska's National Parks and the Alaska SeaLife Center. Sessions were tailored to specific grade levels and included 45 minutes of program content followed by 45 minutes of discussion & collaboration with teachers and guest speakers.

These virtual workshops were offered free of charge for teachers, and we had participants from Alaska to Australia!  Here's a synopsis of the content:
