A two-day workshop to assist elementary and secondary school teachers in presenting science subjects will be held Sept. 30 and Oct. 1 at Southern Utah University.
The "SUU/NASA Teacher Workshop" will feature instructors from NASA headquarters, the Hansen Planetarium in Salt Lake City, the Davis County School District, Utah State University, the NASA Ames Research Center, SUU and Weber State University. Astronaut Rich Clifford will be among the workshop presenters."Our goal is to offer an interface and some help from people directly involved in science to those people who teach in the schools," said Don Blanchard, workshop director and SUU professor of electronics. "We are getting a lot of help from Weber State University personnel who have offered similar workshops for the last four years."
Registration forms for the workshop are available by contacting Blanchard (801-586-7986) or the Utah Center for Rural Life (801-586-5418).
Advance registration is required to participate in the workshop sessions, which will be held in the R. Haze Hunter Conference Center. State in-service credit is available to anyone attending a minimum of 10 hours of workshop sessions. Cost of the workshop is $15, with a possible additional $3-5 materials charge for those attending Saturday sessions.
