Would you like the opportunity to talk directly to local scientists and learn about their research first-hand? Do you want access to free, virtual lesson plans and resources you can immediately use in your classrooms? Want to avoid traffic and not have to move off your couch or wear a mask?! This night is perfect for you! Join us this year for our second VIRTUAL SciREN Triangle and Educator Open House
on Sept. 23, 2021 from 6:00-8:00pm
. (Next year we hope to be back in-person with free pizza and beverages!)
This free, live, online event will feature local scientists, Museum educators, and partner organizations showcasing their lesson plans and resources/opportunities in a relaxed environment. Learn about new virtual programs and field trips, outreach programs, and professional development opportunities that are available during this time of social distancing. Through a partnership with SciREN (Scientific Research and Education Network), meet local scientists ready to distribute curriculum-centered lessons based on their current research! This is an excellent way to rejuvenate teaching methods, integrate relevant and real science into student learning, and reach out into the community. Registered educators will be sent Zoom links for each of the scientists and partner organizations that will be available for live chats (drop-in style) from 6:30-8:30pm. You will also receive access to digital lesson plans. Please consider joining us from the comfort of your own home!
