U.S. Middle School Educators: Scholarship Opportunity to Attend GLOBE Weather Short Course at 2019 NSTA Conference in St. Louis, Missouri
U.S. Middle School Educators: The University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR) is offering a scholarship (approximately $250 in value) for ten teachers to attend the GLOBE Weather Short Course at the NSTA (National Science Teachers Association) Conference in St. Louis, Missouri, on Saturday, 13 April. Participants will walk away with a comprehensive middle school weather unit grounded in NGSS. (Note that travel expenses will not be covered, so teachers who are not from the St. Louis area will need to plan accordingly.)
GLOBE Weather: A New NGSS-Based Middle School Unit – Participants will experience a new, free unit about the science of weather that combines activities, data analysis, modeling, and weather measurements using GLOBE program protocols. The curriculum will help students understand NGSS-based weather concepts (such as the uneven heating of Earth, local and global atmospheric circulation, and air mass formation and collision) as they investigate weather patterns and extreme weather events.
The deadline to apply for the scholarship is 08 March. (If more than ten qualified applications are received, there will be a random drawing on 11 March. You will receive notification whether or not you received the scholarship by 12 March.)
