Several Projects Host Professional Learning This Summer

Teachers from the US and Finland try out an activity.

Summer is a time for teachers to refresh and recharge. For several teachers associated with CREATE-related projects, recharging includes hands-on experiences with the cutting-edge curriculum materials being developed at the early elementary and high school levels. Teachers participating in the Optimal Learning Environments project, an international collaboration between the US and Finland, will meet July 10-14 to hone knowledge and skills and compare experiences. Elementary teachers from around Michigan will have the opportunity to learn more about Teaching Science Outdoors through a collaboration between CREATE and the Kellogg Biological Station in Hickory Corners July 17-20 or (pending funding approval) at the MSU Extension Tollgate Farm and Education Center in Novi July 24-28.
