Scientists at The Tennessee Aquarium Conservation Institute will host a special workshop on Saturday, Nov. 18, to assist high school teachers. “River Teachers” is a seminar for educators that provides content ideas to create exciting activities for their students that meet Tennessee and Georgia standards. Attendees will be able to develop high school science curriculum using real data that has been collected by Aquarium researchers and conservation partners.
The workshop will cover topics including water quality, science and technology, dam removal, and native species reintroduction. The River Teachers will discover some of the ground-breaking freshwater research that’s being conducted across the Southeast. They will also learn how they can collaborate with the Tennessee Aquarium Conservation Institute to become involved with community cleanup programs like Tennessee River Rescue and Georgia Adopt-A-Stream.
The River Teachers Workshop will be Saturday, Nov. 18, from 9 a.m.-5 p.m.
Registration is $10 per person and available here.
