The Science Education Council of Ohio (SECO) is a collaborative community that believes everyone deserves the benefit of a strong science education in order to engage with an ever-changing world.  

Join us for our monthly SECO Webinar Series

Asking Questions & Defining Problems

with Kristen Dotti from Catalyst Learning Curricula

Thursday, September 17th, 4-5:30 p.m.

In this workshop we will practice a repeatable structure for introducing a topic that will be studied through scientific exploration using a remote teaching and learning platform. We will help our students conduct a preliminary investigation at home developing interest in a particular phenomenon by generating data and making observations and hypotheses.

Important Information from ODE

Dear Ohio Science Colleagues,

We at ODE Science want to express our support to all teachers during these uncertain times. With the constant changing of events, we understand how difficult circumstances are right now for teachers in the many roles you carry out daily. 

Please reach out to us at any time with questions or needs that you may have. We are still working at full capacity at ODE, but since we are currently required to work from home, the best way to contact us is via email for the next three weeks at least. 

Additionally, we know that there is an immediate need for resources for home instruction of students and we are connecting with our national and state organizations to create an ODE science resource center where teachers can easily access instructional and learning materials. We are trying to organize this as soon as possible and will send out an update once we have established a centralized location for teachers to access.

We are incredibly grateful for the outstanding work that Ohio science teachers do every day and want to confirm our support for you in the upcoming weeks. Please take care of yourselves and know that we are here for you in whatever ways necessary.
