Advisers Fwd: New course announcement: Project COOL

EDUC 403 & 404: Practicum/Project COOL

Winter & Spring 2014

; T,Th 2-3:20pm

Seeking fantastic folks who are interested in engaging students in authentic science practices during winter and spring quarters! This outreach opportunity is for undergraduate and graduate students who are interested in developing their skills as educators, getting a taste of educational theory and research, as well as working directly with middle school students in an after-school oceanography program.

Project COOL (Chemical Oceanography Outside of the Lab) is an NSF-funded joint outreach and research endeavor. The project brings together scientists and undergraduate students who act as mentors to historically under-represented middle school youth in the sciences by engaging them in authentic oceanography research experiences. You don’t have to be a science major to join the project–just have a passion for science education and developing/expanding your own educational practice.

See the link above and attached flyer for more information; e-mail Déana Scipio at descipio if you have additional questions. Click here to sign up for the 3-credit course (EDUC 403).
