Environmental & Field Science Workshop
for K-12 Educators

May 3-4, 2002 at MTU Ford Forestry Center near L'Anse, MI
2002 Program Agenda Registration Form

This 1-1/2 day multi-disciplinary workshop for K-12 teachers and youth leaders is held the first Friday-Saturday of May each year. The workshop location alternates between the eastern half of the Upper Peninsula (on odd years) and the western half of the Upper Peninsula (on even years). In the eastern U.P. the workshop is held at Clear Lake Education Center on the Hiawatha National Forest (near Shingleton, Michigan); in the western U.P. the workshop is held at either Michigan Technological University's Ford Forestry Center near L'Anse, or Camp Nesbit on the Ottawa National Forest (near Sidnaw, Michigan).

The Teaching With the Outdoors workshop offers presentations and workshops on a wide variety of topics, that are conducted by educators, scientists, university faculty and resource specialists. The Teaching With the Outdoors Workshop is for both less experienced and more experienced K-12 teachers and educators, with an emphasis on hands-on teaching methods, activities, and information that will assist them in meeting Michigan Content Standards and Benchmarks.

Teachers have the option to take the workshop for credit through Michigan Technological University (1.0 ED 5540 credit) or through Northern Michigan University (1.0 ED 989 credit), if they attend in the entire workshop.

Registration is $65 ($35 for university students). Registration includes lunch and dinner on Friday, as well as breakfast and lunch on Saturday. Some sessions require an additional fee for teacher kits and activity guides. Teachers should ask their school or intermediate school district (ISD) about the availability of Eisenhower funds to cover registration, substitute fees, and travel.
