Here is an exciting professional development opportunity offered by the Ohio Geological Survey. This year, the Ohio Seismic Network (OhioSeis) is organizing a free teacher workshop designed to help 8th grade teachers meet the state science standards for seismology through the use of engaging activities and demonstrations. The workshop will be held at the Mohican Outdoor School on Tuesday August 1, 2017, from 10 am to 4 pm and offers 5 contact hours for professional development. Participants should register by June 30 at www.surveymonkey.com/r/39TX3FN.
If you are unable to attend the workshop, you can still benefit from the work we do at OhioSeis. Feel free to contact OhioSeis about questions, data, or to organize a presentation. They are willing and able to give in-class presentations to all grade levels and adjust the content to what you’re presenting in class. Also, check out the Ohio Geological Survey website (geosurvey.ohiodnr.gov) for interactive maps, activities, and information about Ohio geology.
