Science in the Park

June 6 – 10, 2010

This  week-long,  standards-aligned teacher workshop is being offered at San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park for those who teach grades K-5. Teachers will gain the tools, techniques and confidence to explore the outside world with their students, learning about forest habitats near and far as they record and reflect on their experiences using a simple but significant tool — the science journal. Discoveries will begin with individual trees that could be outside a school and then expand into the natural areas, gardens, and exhibits found in Golden Gate Park.

The workshop will explore investigation skills through the lens of forest ecosystems. Topics covered include climate, plant and animal interactions, and conservation. The workshop is designed to make science teaching more exciting and accessible for kindergarten through fifth grade teachers. Join us to see why past participants have been so excited about this program!

The Science in the Park worshop is presented by the San Francisco Botanical Garden Society and the California Academy of Sciences, and features the Conservatory of Flowers and the de Young Fine Arts Museum.
