NYSMuseum ESwkshop

Join us in July for the New York State Museum’s Annual Earth Science Teacher Workshop. This year’s workshop will be held at SUNY Geneseo. Workshop leaders will be New York State Museum geology and paleontology staff.

The workshop provides a three-day, hands-on educational experience for New York Earth Science/Physical Setting Teachers. Participants are immersed in geology and paleontology for a minimum of 8 hours each day, totaling 24 contact hours of continuing education credit*. Two field trips with experts help integrate learned knowledge with real world geo-paleo experiences and will assist teachers in building better rock, fossil, mineral and photo collections for use in the classroom.

*Note: The New York State Museum is an approved provider of Continuing Teacher and Leader Education (CTLE). If you are employed in a New York State school, your employing district approves all professional development activities to accrue towards your continuing professional development requirement.
